    Hello group
    I'm working on a project and I want to be able to somehow disable/enable a network access for security reason.

    I want the sequence to look like this:

    Boot A: No network access
    At midnight, automatic reboot
    Boot B: Network access
    Update some stuff from the network
    Automatic reboot
    Boot A: ...

    I though about using 2 hardware profiles but as long as there's nobody to choose the profile at boot time it can't work.

    Could I use 2 different user profiles? If so, how can I force one specific login at each boot?

    Tia for your help!

    The only thing I could think of: Setup the network connection for one user so that the TCP/IP protocol is removed and/or 'un-binded' from the 'Local Area Network' which would very much disallow network access.

    Good luck! :)
