Determines whether a user can install and configure the Network Bridge. Important: This settings is location aware. It only applies when a computer is connected to the same DNS domain network it was connected to when the setting was refreshed on that computer.

The Network Bridge allows users to create a layer 2 MAC bridge, enabling them to connect two or more network segements together. This connection appears in the Network Connections folder. If you disable this setting or do not configure it, the user will be able to create and modify the configuration of a Network Bridge. Enabling this setting does not remove an existing Network Bridge from the user's computer Fix: (1) GPO: Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Network\Network Connections\Prohibit installation and configuration of Network Bridge on your DNS domain network (2) REG: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Network Connections!NC_AllowNetBridge_NLA
