Need help to add additional code to JS script regarding IE connection programming

Rexx asked
Last Modified: 2010-04-17
I'm am currently using js script between the *s below as follows:


function KillIE()
     var shell = new ActiveXObject("Shell.Application");
    var wins = shell.Windows();
    var e = new Enumerator(wins);
    for (; !e.atEnd(); e.moveNext())

function ToggleProxy()
    var KeyName = "HKCU\\Software\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Internet Settings\\ProxyEnable";
    var WshShell = new ActiveXObject("WScript.Shell");

    var ProxyEnabled = WshShell.RegRead(KeyName);
    var newValue = ProxyEnabled ? 0 : 1;


    if(newValue == 0)
          newValue = "IE set for Office";
    else if(newValue == 1)
          newValue = "IE set for Home";

function LoadIE()
    var IE = new ActiveXObject("InternetExplorer.Application");
    IE.Visible = false;



What this script does is toggle Internet Explorer (IE) Connections/LAN Settings/Proxy server either on or off.

The code I need to add/modify to the code above is to toggle between 1 of 2 ways as follows:

(1) Check mark both "Use a proxy server ... " and "Bypass proxy server ... " then add the appropriate IP address and Port to each server type.
(2) Check mark only "Use a proxy server ... " then add the appropriate IP address and Port to each server type.
