  • How to bypass the proxy on a notebook not in the office

    We have a number of workstations which are assigned an internal proxy server via a GPO. Of these workstations, some are notebooks which are used outside the company via a USB 3G connection. But the GPO still tries to set their IE proxy to the internal server.

    Is there a way to setup specific workstations such that if they do not get a response from the internal proxy that they use NO proxy instead?

    WinXP SP3 & Win7 Enterprise workstations. Proxy is Squid on Windows Server 2003.

    dude you should be able to manually specify the proxy settings in IE (in this case no proxy) for the 3g connection in the Tools, Internet Options, Connection TAB (dial-up and settings section) TAB

      Instead of using GPO for proxy settings, you can also use WPAD

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_Pro...overy_Protocol

      This way, when not in the network, no proxy is detected, so no proxy will be configured.

        Install ProxyPal on the laptops. One mouse click to turn proxy off but I can't remember using it with a GPO setting the proxy.

          wpad is your best option in reality.

          set up wpad, set your GPO to have proxy autodetect enabled on the computers (but not configured a specific srver) then it;ll try and configure itself. if it can't find a 'wpad' hostname, it'll go direct

            WIn7 will (IIRC) allow you to specify settings by network, so you can get different ones on a domain and on a home network
