Ed Bott's Microsoft Challenge--2/10

By ebott ·
Are you ready for yet another new version of Internet Explorer? Microsoft may call it IE 5.0, but this browser has a few features you won?t find in earlier versions of IE. What?s the best way to set up Windows 2000?s IE version for use on a corporate network?

By using the IEAK (Internet explorer Administration kit) I have been able to set up multiple base profiles for groups within my ordanization. It allows a basically one-touch install based on whether the user will be a Intranet only, have external web access only, or be able to access full Internet services, including telnet, FTP, and Usenet. It also allows an administrator to lock down different settings depending on how much the user can be trusted to not muck up his own computer.

The best way is definitely to use the IEAK to create a custom installation for the company specific settings. The most important ones are the security settings and the proxy settings. Regarding the proxy settings, it is very handy that IE 5 has the auto-detect proxy feature.

Actually since beta 3 there was a little tool on the disk that creates the MSI installation 'packages' fo distribution via active directory.
and can be an 'optional' advertised package that you can install with the add/remove control panel.

just run up the lab computer (clean installation ) take a snapshot with the program then install ie and tweak it to your hearts content
and complete the snapshot! boom
instant MSI package that can be added tot he active directory or located on a network share that installs witha double click and can self heal

the snapshot program was called.. post forhcoming i cant find my disk right now. and the phone started ringing.
:)
