How to properly use a proxy
Posted on 2009-05-19
Hi. We have used Group Policy (Windows 2008 domain) to apply proxy settings to users' workstations (running Windows XP). This works as expected internally. However, when they take their laptops outside our network, they are unable to surf the internet. We have disabled access to the Connections Tab under Internet Options.
Is this the expected behaviour? Does that mean if the proxy goes offline that people will be unable to surf at all?
Is there a way for Windows XP to not use the proxy if the server is unavailable?
