Proxy settings

Hey guys,

I have setup a firewall (IPCop). Also have installed urlfilter and advanced proxy addon. Using server 2003 as DC and DHCP is running on the DC

Firewall 192.168.1.1
DC 192.168.1.2
DNS 192.168.1.2
WINS 192.168.1.2
Gateway: 192.168.1.1

No I need to enter the proxy ip and port (192.168.1.1 - 800) in the browser automatically once the user logs in.

Is that possible for all browsers?

Also is there a way to block certain website from server?

Thanks,

I found out in GPO that for IE settings can be forced and restricted for changes. But a user can just install another browser and use it that way.

Whats the work around?

Hi,

Check this URL for autodetection of your proxy-server. http://www.grape-info.com/doc/win2000srv/internet-gw/wpad/index.html
You can block websites with group-policy as seen on http://www.chrisse.se/MAQB.asp?ID=17

good luck

Just make sure users have no administrator rights on the local computer. This prevents them from installing all sorts of unwanted software (like browsers).

gaffie: that would only apply to IE, Can I setup something on the DHCP so that all browsers get that setting?

There is no DHCP solution as for firefox uses DNS to guess your proxy address....

My firewall actually supports transparent proxy, so all port 80 traffic goes through the proxy.

I guess I wont need to fool around with anything else.
