How do I get different proxy settings when starting up IE7?
Posted on 2008-06-16
I have a laptop user who moves between the office and his home. He is the chairman of the company, 67 years old and has only recently started using a computer.
At the office we are still using a proxy server for Internet access and the proxy settings are currently populated via group policy. When the chairman takes his laptop home and connects to his wireless network the proxy settings are still active and he can't get on the net. My other users know to tick and untick the proxy settings when moving around, but the chairman is not capable of this at the moment nor is he interested in messing around - it just has to work.
My best case scenario would be 2 IE icons, one for work and one for home - is this achievable? Is there any startup switches that can put in or take out proxy settings? Or does it have to be scripted? Not sure if there are any other obvious solutions that I have missed?
