I would like to know how to run a script on MS server 2k3 to change all the workstations to use a proxy server.  The settings that need to be changed are tools>Internet options>connections>lan settings> and under the proxy server section I need the- Use a proxy server box checked and a IP configured.

Any ideas?  I would like to do a test run first, of course.
Thanks

If you have domain environment, proxy settings can be configured with Group Policy settings. If you need more info, let me know...

Yes, I'm sorry, it would be a GPO push.  Are you able to assist in this?  I have not navigated to the web links you suggested yet.

If you are willing to try GPO solution, you should create GPO which can be set  per user or per machine.

Per machine settings can be found under Computer settings\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Internet Explorer

Per user settings can be found under User settings\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Internet Explorer

Well I didn't manage to type an answer on time... On second thought you should make policy per user.tYou have to be Domain Administrator and have GPMC installed, to complete the following procedure:

1. Create Test OU in Active Directory Users and Computers or Group Policy Managment Console.
2. Move test user account in Test OU In Active Directory Users and Computers.
3. Go to GPMC, browse to Test OU, right click and select: Create and link GPO here, name your GPO (for example) Proxy settings.
4. Browse to Group Policy Objects, right click Proxy settings GPO and select Edit...
5. Per user settings can be found under User settings\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Internet Explorer Disable changing of proxy settings and under User settings\Windows settings\Internet Explorer Maintenance\Connection\Proxy settings.
