IP Communicator 8.6.1 - Network settings are grayed out

My environment:  IP Communicator 8.6.1 on Windows Vista

I am playing around with the new IP Communicator 8.6.1 in my lab and I've found the network settings are grayed out when I try to change the tftp server address.

You need to right-click on the desktop IP communicator icon and choose "run as administrator" in order to change the network settings in this new release.

go to the EXE in the IP Communicator folder and chg the compatibility mode to Windows 7 or 8 - that allows you to make the changes under the Network tab
