I am working on a project at work that requires me to setup 7 laptops. These laptops will be running XP Pro. The users will be logging in from their office (LAN) and also from home using broadband. They will log into our Netilla system (SSL/VPN) using broadband. My question is.... is there a way to configure the TCP/IP settings ie. DNS and WINS and the IE proxy settings according to how they are connected. ie. automatically detect, or the users chooses a connection. The reasons for this is that if they have our current DNS settings etc, obviously this will not work over the internet. I need an "easy" way for the users to be able to switch between locations without manually changing these settings as some of them are not PC literate.
I hope this is clear.
Regards

This is what DHCP is for. However if you aren't using DHCP then look at the alternative IP settings in the properties of TCP/IP.
IE Proxy settings are a little more difficult. You may have to look at some kind of automatic configuration. I believe there is a way to get IE to look in a certain place for Proxy config settings. If it cannot find them then it reverts to manual. Take a look at the IE6 Admin Kit for more information: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/using/techinfo/default.mspx

Thanks Sembee, I'd looked at ieak and thought it was a bit heavy for what I wanted to do. I knew about the auto discovery of DNS etc, but just wondered if there was a way to "Specify" IP info in these fields. Anyways this will do for the time being.
Thanks
