IE 6.0 and User Proxy Authentication, Auto-login/Auto-authentication

Hi,

In the network where I am, I am forced to login with my proxy-user-account each time I open IE.
My company has a proxy server that requires user to login each time before they access the Internet.

My IE is configured via

Internet Options -> Connections -> LAN Settings -> Address and Port

then, when, accessed, Internet, IE prompts for login page with username/password and when keyed-in I am able
to access Internet pages. If IE window is closed then the proxy-session is terminated, wich means that I have to login
the next time i open new IE window.

IE login page provides also "Save Password" checkbox that does not have any effect, since the login page is poping-up each time
I want to access Internet and I HAVE TO press OK each time I close and open new IE window.

Is there a way to bypass this login page and let IE use the IE login-window (username+pass) entered values?

Is there any other application that I can use that runs in background and logs-in and authenticates the user automatically?
(I have seen similar functionalities in software like Skype, that is totally independent of IE)

p.s.
Pame effect is at present in firefox 1.5.2, login page is pop-ing up.


Thank You,

Mike

I would suggest talking to your IT people to determine why they feel that is neccessary.  This is not YOUR computer or network.  It is your employer's.

Am i correct in that assumption or is it indeed YOUR company?
