you could use the function to detect automatically connections settings.
in this case, you have two choices!
- use DHCP http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc940962%28WS.10%29.aspx
- use DNS http://technet.microsoft.com/fr-fr/library/ee658150.aspx

Based on this, i think laptop on external networks will not be able to found proxy information and therefore access directly to Internet.
