  • Proxy config removal when not on domain

    Hi

    I have a question that I know someone here can answer. Whe our users are away from the office with their shiny new Windows 7 Laptops, the Proxy configuration is still present, even if the system is shut down and restarted it is the same. I would like to find out if anyone knows of a way to set the proxy config based on the NLA setting. So if on Domain use this proxy and if off domain (Home\Public) do not use a proxy.

    Anyone know if this is possible and if so how? We have not upgraded to Windows Server 2008 as yet.

    Thanks

    what proxy configuration do you use ?

    try "autodetect proxy" setting instead, then research "wpad" or proxyautodetect. be careful, because in Win2008, they hobbled DNS a little bit, preventing you from registering names like wpad. There is a fix for this though..

    this way, your clients will attempt to locate the proxy, by doing a dns search for "wpad.domain.com"

    if it cannot find a wpad srever, it will access directly. of course, if they go to another organisation where wpad is in use, it will use that proxy too..


    I'm not sure of using NLA to configure things like this, or detect them, howevert it does sound like a really neat idea !

      Thanks heaps for the informtion. It looks like just what we are after to resolve the problem.
      I would like to see MS add in the function to let you set this type of thing based on NLA. So if its domain at x location use this proxy, if its public or private use none.
      Would make perfect sense to use it in this way to me....

        You can set something up like that.

        As you can get DNS to push out the scripts, and normally each domain has its own primary DNS server, each DNS server can have its own Script.

        There is a short "how to", but I have seen some insanly complexe PAC and WPAD files. Google around and you will find them, or just make your own.

            Using wpad or proxy.pac file is the way to go.

            To remove the WPAD from the Windows 2008 DNS block list, type the following command:
            Code:
            Dnscmd /config /globalqueryblocklistisatap

              What Proxy Server are you using Spader? The answer may result in WPAD or Proxy.Pac being unsuitable.
