• Guest Account Restrictions

    From DesotoFireflite@VERT/VALHALLA to All on Sunday, June 05, 2022 12:30:58
    I logged in using the "Guest" account to check out what the guest could do on the system. I was able to go in and change the User Defaults even though I have flag "G" listed in the user account restriction field.

    Taken from Wiki

    G Edit Defaults User cannot edit their account settings (e.g. "Guest" account)

    Am I looking at this wrong, or did something get broken.

    The changes a 'Guest' makes to the user settings should not be saved. i.e. they won't have any impact on another 'Guest' that's logged in at the same time or later.

    I was hoping that was the case, thanks for verifing this for me. Thanks.
