Internet access

By Tejota ·
I have an NT Workstation that does not seem to hold its proxy setting (address) in the internet properties for very long. I can't seem to track it, but I've logged in as an administrator on the workstation and made the change to ensure that it would stick....It doesn't. Every few days it seems the user calls me to tell me that the proxy address field is blank again. Any thoughts????

In the proxy server, IIS -> you can specify the settings and port and everything that you want the user to to have. Define the default gateway to be the address of the Proxy Server and fro example in IE 5, under the connections tab and in the LAN settings check the proxy box and then put the address of the proxy server in the box. Assuming the proxy server address is Static and not DHCP. The proxy server will send the configuration script to the client that might look something like this...
http://your_proxy_server_name_here:/array.dll?Get.Routing.Script

this would be in the use automatic script section of the connection. Hope this helps.

Try configuring the browser to get its proxy settings from a proxy.pac file. Then you can store the file in a protected area on the network and nobody can change it. This will also help ensure that ALL of your workstations have the correct settings,and if you ever need to change them, you just make a single change, and all workstations see the change.

You can search Technet or Microsoft's website for specific instructions. You have a lot of flexibility when you use a proxy.pac file. Look into it!
