Does anyone know where the Internet Explorer's Proxy configuration is stored in the Registry?
I am developing a little script, which is supposed to retrieve a web page, I want to be able to automatically set the proxy configuration to access the web page if this proxy setting is configured on the local system.

Thanks.

It is stored under

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings

The value name is 'ProxyServer', the content is '<proxy>:<port>'
