Windows 2000 Pro; Internet Lan Settings

By ZakM ·
We are currently running Netware, and have approx 45 Windows 2000 workstations attaching to it via Netware Windows 2000 client.

The problem we are having are related to the proxy settings within internet explorer.

Being in a school enviroment every student has to put in these settings inorder to get onto the internet.

For that session all is well, however when the next student logs on ,these settings disappear.
I know it has something to do with user profiles within Win2K but not surewhat.

We need to be able to set these parameters globally.

When you have 1100 students on site this can cause a lot of problems.

Windows 2000 Pro; Internet Lan Settings

Hi,
Not very familiar with netware, if you are able to apply group policy centrally, then on a domain controller you can put the settings into the GPO of the OU your users are in, select user config \windows settings\IE maintenance\connection. any setting you specify there will be applied to any user within that OU who logs in on any machine on the domain. if this option is not available to you then the same thing can be done on a per machine basis. As an admin, select start \ run and type MMC, in the box that opens, select console \ add remove snap in. from the list that appears, select group policy and say ok. select local machine when prompted. This opens the gpo policy for the local machine, alter the settings as outlined earlier. the settings will apply to everyone who logs on the local machine. Note that if you are not familiar with GPO's, then have look around at the other options available within them - very useful! unless you can use domain level gpos (rather than local) then this does mean a visit to every workstation. If this is a problem, then log in as a new user, set the IE stuff, then log out. Log back in as admin, go to the previous users profile, and copy the NTUSER.DAT file from there over to the DEFAULT USER profile - replacing the one there. NOTE that you may need to change your view options to see the file - in explorer select tools \ folder options \ view tab. every NEW user that logs on receives a copy of the default user profile, which now contains your IE settings. In order to make this work, you will need to run delprof.exe from the reskit to delete existing profiles on all machines, so that everyone picks up the changes. Why this might save you time, is because you can copy the ntuser.datto default user on each machie, and run delprof, over the network. Hope this helps, mail me if you need more info.

If the Browser is IE 5.5 you can select the Autofind proxy setting on the browser instead of typing in the IP address every time. Another option is use the IEAK and create a custom install of IE that has all of your settings that are required.
