Prtable computer and proxy server

By robw ·
I am configuring a portable computer to access the internet via a MS Proxy 2.0 Agent while on the LAN. When not on the LAN the computer will not connect to the dial up AT&T account unless I manually disable the Winsock proxy client. Is there anyway to automate this action as the user has to change the setting and reboot each time they change location from the office to the outside world. Also they must change the default account in the email account settings as there are different SMTP servers depending on location.

I use a product called Netswitcher.
www.netswitcher.com to get around this problem. Before that I used Symantec's Mobile Essentials. Both products are great. Netswitcher is a little easier to use and cost alot less.
When I ran into this problem the first time I had to update my Winsock and reapply service packs and it was a real pain.It worked for awhile and caused problems again. With these two products it eliminated alot of headaches.
Email me if you need more information.
