I would suggest to install putty and generate a ssh key without (or maybe
with?) password. With this key the user can login to some special account
and perform something like "sudo <command to start inet connection" in
the login script and another account for stopping the inet connection. You
just have to setup sudo (or wait, I think that even normal users can
start/stop an inet connection...).
You can even give putty the remote command (just looked it up):
Preferences->Connection->SSH->Remote command.

Someone else said, that 7.2 is no more supported. This is wrong, it will
be supported until 8.3/9.0 (or whatever the next version will be named) is
But you should regulary run yast online update or fou4s.
