    Hi,

    I am using Simple Software Restriction Policy. The app has an option to require a user password or admin password to get to it's settings, and to 'unlock' SRP for 0.5 hours.

    This password setting requires me to allow network logins, in Local Security Policy > Local Policies > User rights management > Access this computer from the network. (provide list of accounts/groups are allowed to login). And the related config item > Deny access to this computer from the network.

    So, if I set Deny access ... to Everyone, SSRP cannot be configured to use passwords.

    Question is, which protection is more important, Deny access from the network, or having a password to control SSRP operation?

    I assume that the Deny access ... from the network is meant to control usage of winrs ? Am I right?
