if you are using w2000, XP clients, you can use poledit (search the forums and with google)
it doesn't work with vista/w7 clients
if you are using firefox as default browser, it doesn't work.
if you are using IE, you should switch to Firefox

hint: instead using group ploicy you should use a login script.. google will tell you more

Hello dear Sir.  Do you mean "can SME server manage and propagate group policies over the network to Windows workstation attached to the network", I think the answer is No.  You would need a Windows server for this job.  Implementing group policies required to deal with each individual machines as far as I know (gredit.msc routine...).  I would love to be corrected, would make my life a lot easier.

I just create some reg files and i run them as an administrator on the workstations.
I do not use a AD server bc the no of wortstations to ea h server is usually about.
I keep the reg files at a central server.
If what you are wanting to change is not so routine(daily). You might want to try this
All workstations are run in user mode strictly.

This thread got me to wondering if you could write a program to do windows registry changes to all windows oses an run the program under administrator privileges.
I wrote a program to start a program under administrative privileges and it uses the commad line to do this. So you have to put the administratr password on the command tail that makes it in clearview inside any batch file you might put this program in.
So far for me. That has not been a problem. Some dont even know where the the start menu is.
But a  thought of compiling a batch file comes to mind to keep the admin password from main view.
You might even be able to right a script such as a vbs to do registry edits.
