## Change the Network Category in Windows Server 2012 with PowerShell

This article describes how we can change the network category from “Public network” to “Private network” with the Windows PowerShell.

First let us get a list of all available network profiles on your system.

`Get-NetConnectionProfile`

Now let us change the network category to Private, (use the InterfaceIndex number from the selected network profile within the Set command).

`Set-NetConnectionProfile -InterfaceIndex 17 -NetworkCategory Private`
