Updating Proxy Exceptions for Dial Up and VPN Connections

Due to the size and nature of my organisation, the proxy exceptions within our network have to be modified frequently.  For users connected to our LAN this is automatically updated via Group Policy, but for our VPN users the proxy exceptions have to be manually updated by the user as the VPN\Dial Up connection settings are independent to the LAN connection settings.  Any ideas greatly appreciated.  cheers, chris.

create a logon script for the VPN users which will make the needed c hanges in the registry.
it is the
"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Proxy Overrride" key

Hi, thanks for your reply but...

This only changes the LAN connection settings which the VPN users receive via group policy, anyway. The Dial Up connection is the issue.

just add the dialup users to a group and make the script check if the user is member of the group "VPN users" or "DIALUP users" and if yes then make the change in the registry. you can add more conditions like this - ip adress etc.

Your suggestion works for the LAN connection...

From IE > Tools > Internet Options > Connections > Lan Settings > Advanced > Exceptions

...but not for the Dial Up connection for IPASS...

From IE > Tools > Internet Options > Connections > "IPASS" Settings > Advanced >Exceptions

i see...
is there no key in the registry for that too? tro to make some exception by hand - for example 6.6.6.7 then open regedit and then search for the 6.6.6.7 value to find it out

The exception isn't searchable in the registry as is in coded hex but i have found it under-

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Connections]

I'll export the updated entry and push out via the login script.

cheers for the help.
