I am trying to create an addition to my login script for my users to automaticly set there proxy settings.
I am going to be implementing the proxy server in 2 weeks, and need a quick way to set ALL there proxy settings in one swing.

Thanks in advance.

If you are using Active Directory I would recommend group policy to do this.  You can import the settings from a local box and force them to your client machines.  Let me know if you want more info on this.

If you just need a batch file, try out this link and let me know how it works for you:

Windows 2003 Creating and editing group policy

Group policies can be applied on a domain or an Organisational Unit, to apply a group policy in a 2003 domain environment, do the following.

On a domain controller open "Active directory Users and computers"

NOTE: As said above you can apply a GP to an OU in this instance we will deal with a domain GP, if you are concerned with a GP for an OU insert the "OU name" instead of the "Domain Name"

1. Locate the domain (top of the Tree) and right click it, then select "Properties"
2. Select the group policy Tab.
3. You will see the Default domain policy (and any other policies applied at this level)
4. You can create another domain policy by clicking "New" giving it a name and configuring it"
5. Ensure the default domain policy is highlighted and select "Edit" (unless you are working on another policy)
6. The Group policy object editor will open.
7. You can now edit the policy and close the editor when you are finished.
8. Back in the domain properties click "apply" and "OK"
