Re: Only root show be able to connect/disconnect from netwok
I belive there is an option under the network administration that labels a device as "user controled". If it is not flagged, then users will not be able to start/stop the network.
You can also look at the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts for the device and change the "USERCTL=yes" to "USERCTL=no" to get the same effect.
BTW, check all network startup scripts (you have one for each interface), also good idea to check the "ONBOOT" parameter to make sure it has the value "yes" (otherwise you could be running around starting everybodys network).
