Changing Proxy Setting via Batch File

Posted on 2006-04-24
Last Modified: 2008-02-01
We currently are using 2 Proxy Servers at my work place.  (Long Story)  Some users need both.  Instead of them using changing the setting in internet explorer I would like them to simple double click a small batch file to switch from one to another.  I am have trouble writing it.  Any help would be appreciated.

    Check that:

    Create a file with the settings and let the users double-click it. Yo umay have problems with permissions...

    Also, if you have a domain, you can do it from AD policies... and no special user rights are required.

    Good luck,

    BTW: You may want to give a look at [proxycfg /?] from the command line.
