Set-NetConnectionProfile

Changes the network category of a connection profile.
Set-NetConnectionProfile [-CimSession <CimSession[]>] [-InterfaceAlias <String[]>] [-InterfaceIndex <UInt32[]>][-IPv4Connectivity <IPv4Connectivity[]>] [-IPv6Connectivity <IPv6Connectivity[]>] [-Name <String[]>][-NetworkCategory {Public | Private | DomainAuthenticated}] [-PassThru] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>] [-Confirm][-WhatIf] [<CommonParameters>]
Set-NetConnectionProfile [-CimSession <CimSession[]>] [-NetworkCategory {Public | Private | DomainAuthenticated}][-PassThru] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [<CommonParameters>]

The Set-NetConnectionProfile cmdlet changes the network category setting of a connection profile. A connection profile represents a network connection.

Parameters

-CimSession [<CimSession[]>]

Runs the cmdlet in a remote session or on a remote computer. Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

-InterfaceAlias [<String[]>]

Specifies an array of names of network adapters.

-InterfaceIndex [<UInt32[]>]

Specifies an array of numerical index values associated with the network adapters.

-IPv4Connectivity [<IPv4Connectivity[]>]

Specifies an array of IPv4 protocol connectivity status values. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

-- Disconnected-- NoTraffic-- Subnet-- LocalNetwork-- Internet

-IPv6Connectivity [<IPv6Connectivity[]>]

Specifies an array of IPv6 protocol connectivity status values. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

-- Disconnected-- NoTraffic-- Subnet-- LocalNetwork-- Internet

-Name [<String[]>]

Specifies an array of names of networks with which the connection is currently established.

-NetworkCategory [<NetworkCategory>]

Specifies an array of category types of a network. You cannot set the DomainAuthenticated type by using this cmdlet. The server automatically sets the value of DomainAuthenticated when the network is authenticated to a domain controller. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

-- Public-- Private

-PassThru [<SwitchParameter>]

Returns an object representing the item with which you are working. By default, this cmdlet does not generate any output.

-ThrottleLimit [<Int32>]

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShellr calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.

-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]

  • Default value is false

Prompts you for confirmation before running the cmdlet.Prompts you for confirmation before running the cmdlet.

-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]

  • Default value is false

Shows what would happen if the cmdlet runs. The cmdlet is not run.Shows what would happen if the cmdlet runs. The cmdlet is not run.

<CommonParameters>

This cmdlet supports the common parameters: Verbose, Debug,ErrorAction, ErrorVariable, WarningAction, WarningVariable,OutBuffer, PipelineVariable, and OutVariable.

Examples
  1. Change the network category of a connection profile:
    1. This first command gets the connection profile for the network adapter named Ethernet1:
      PS C:\> $Profile = Get-NetConnectionProfile -InterfaceAlias Ethernet1
      

      The command stores the results in the $Profile variable.

    2. This second command assigns the value of Public to the NetworkCategory property of the connection profile stored in the $Profile variable:
      PS C:\> $Profile.NetworkCategory = Public
      
    3. This third command sets the network category of the connection profile stored in the $Profile variable:
      PS C:\> Set-NetConnectionProfile -InputObject $Profile
      

      This example changes the network category of a connection profile.
