any change to the network configuration or the dialup
networking/Remote Access setup, you will need to

requires either to request all users to disconnect or
to work early morning or late evening or weekends

it without a restart !
you can add a network protocol
without a restart:
But don't be too excited:
removing a Network protocol still requires a restart:
