Hi,

We have recently installed Webmarshal on our network and set internet explorer to pick up the proxy settings via group policy. The problem is, when laptop users log off the network and go home, the cannot connect to the network from their home broadband connections because of their internet explorer proxy settings.

How could I unset the proxy settings when they log off the network?

Regards

Eggyh

Hello,

Your Laptop Users may save plenty of time undoing the LAN settings/Proxy by using this cool Utility called NetProfiles.

Hope it helps.

Hi,

Ummm....didn't really want to educate my laptop users in the way of disabling Webmarshal. I was thinking along the lines of a local policy or a log off script.

Experiment with the NetProfiles in 1 computer and you'll be able to see what it does. You're not going to disable the Webmarshal, you're only adding another Network Profile to connect to other network places. You may also appy this if they log on locally (not under Domain) to their computers.

2xg,

Ok, thanks. I'll have a look. I was hoping for something a bit more seamless though. Any ideas are welcome.

Cheers
