I don't know why but my findings tells me that running my process as "SYSTEM' (LocalSystem), can connect me to another server. Other users are completely stopped from doing so. Is there a way for me to find out what restriction imposed on other users? Thank you

is that localservice or system? – tony roth Mar 23 '11 at 22:07


The LocalSystem account doesn't have access to other servers, as indicated by the name. If you can offer up a bit more information, we might be able to assist if this is still an issue, but as it stand now your question is a bit sparse.
