  • Searching for clients that are using a proxy!

    Hi,

    I was just curious if there is an easy way to search if any clients on a Domain are using a proxy server? I know you can restrict this via group policy but this will cause a headache to start implementing this to 100's of different clints in different departments, some need web acces some don't etc.....

    Any practical advice will be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Couch,

    Without using GPO's to force down proxy settings, I don't believe there is going to be an easy way to discover which clients are and are not using a proxy other then using a script. Assuming all of these servers/clients are on your domain, if you can or find someone to write a script/batch file to check for the following registry key you could find which clients are configured:

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Internet Settings]
    "MigrateProxy"=dword:00000001
    "ProxyEnable"=dword:00000001
    "ProxyHttp1.1"=dword:00000000
    "ProxyServer"="http://ProxyServername:80"
    "ProxyOverride"="<local>"

      Here's my script for querying who's used mcafee addin for outlook.

      With minor adjustements you should be able to use my script.
      It's really not that hard..

      @echo off
      if not exist pc.txt (net view | find /i "\\" >>pc.txt)

      for /f %%i in (pc.txt) do echo %%i >>result.txt && reg query "%%i\HKLM\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\EXCHANGE\CLIENT\EXTEN SIONS" /F "Exchange Scan" |find /i "exchange " >>result.txt
      Please give points where appropriate

      <I dont create ready scripts for you, but I'm willing to point you in the right direction>
