I am a Jr Admin of a company who's boss seems to think its a good idea to get local admin rights to all users... I can't win until i take his job. We have some users who set the firewalls to disable all connections coming in.
How can I remotely reconfigure these firewalls without their knowledge?

Sure I could drive out grab the machine, do some things to get me fired to have things done correctly, but i'm looking for a simpler way to get this done.
