Creating a VB script for pointing a computer to a proxy server

Hi guys,

Forgive my lack of knowledge but I don't have an in depth knowledge of VB. I want to create a VB script which will allow me to point a computer to a proxy server based on its subnet. How might I go about creating this?

Thanks very much for your time,

Kind regards,

PK

Make a new text document, and paste the following code:

'------------------------------------------------------------------------------'
Set oShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
RegKeyPath = "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\"
oShell.RegWrite RegKeyPath & "ProxyServer", WScript.Arguments.Item(0), "REG_SZ"
oShell.RegWrite RegKeyPath & "ProxyEnable", "1", "REG_DWORD"
'------------------------------------------------------------------------------'

Rename the txt file to a .vbs file. You can normally double click it to run, but in this case, you will have to run it as a command line...

Eg...
  SetProxyPath.vbs "www.MyNewProxy.com"

It will set that path as the proxy server, and enable the proxy setting.

Hope this is what you wanted
