I have a client that has a windows 7 pro (32-bit) PC running a CNC machine.
In the past, I have configured a proxy (Internet options > Connections tab > LAN settings)
With the box check to bypass proxy for local addresses (so they can access local Intranet, and not the internet)
This works great keeping users from accessing the internet….all good.
Present Day…They have made some upgrades to the CNC machine and support remotes into the PC (from internet) and works on configuring software to work with machine.
Problem now is: when I uncheck the “Use proxy server” in settings, PC will not go back to normal internet access. Doesn’t matter how many times you restart, PC will not access internet and you cannot remote into it.
I have done this trick for years and had no problems (easy-peasy)
Only way I have been able to bring this PC out of this is to issue these commands.
netsh int ip reset reset.log
netsh winsock reset reset.log
Then after issuing these commands I have to restart PC and manually add in both network card static settings (IP, Gateway…etc.)
Then all is good until the PC is restarted, then it goes back like it was with the “Use proxy server” check box. PC will access local intranet, but no Internet or remote access. And the “Use proxy server” check box is blank!
Anyone know what is going on here and why this PC is not letting go of these settings.
Don’t know if a reg setting is hanging on or something I am overlooking.
This PC is on a domain, but it is not joined to the domain (stand-a-lone box)
Has Symantec AV, but I can’t see anything wrong with setting here, and all other domain PC have same AV and I can walk over to one of them and run through the “Use proxy server” settings and block internet access and then uncheck the “Use proxy server” settings and back to internet access.
Need an Expert to broaden my horizons!!
Thanks in advance.
