Hello: Does anyone know of a way to script (perhaps in a login script) the addition of IE proxy settings, and then disable these same settings using a logoff script? This is for my mobile users. On the LAN I need then to use my proxy server, but if the proxy settings are still in place when they are off the LAN then their connection fails when using a public hotspot, hotel broadband, etc. I have shown users how to disable the proxy settings when working offline, but this is still my #1 issue for traveling users. If I could automate the configure/de-configure process it would be particularly valuable. Best regards... Bill

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I will suggest you to use the MS Scripting pages. If you go to this site, you will find a script to retrieve the TCP/IP configuration of your client (http://www.microsoft.com/technet/scriptcenter/scripts/network/client/list/nwlsvb02.mspx). With this information, particularly with the DNS Suffix, you can determine if your client is local or remote.
Then you can use a script (http://www.microsoft.com/technet/scriptcenter/scripts/os/registry/osrgvb04.mspx) to update the registry key “HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionInternet SettingsProxyEnable”

I let you the pleasure to write the definitive script.

    Win one for XP - you can have a primary setup for online and an alternative setup when away from the lan. Or you can write your own by scripting. Or you can use 'Netswitcher' which allows setups for different networks easily.
