We are using a logon script batch file for people that use a mandatory profile. This script is shared for Win Nt 4.0 workstations as well as Win 95 workstations. What we need to do is add an entry to the logon script that plants the proxy server settings (192.168.65.2 port 80) into Internet Explorer at logon to NT4.0 workstations only. I suspect the script will modify the registry to accomplish this. I don't know the syntax of what to write in the batch file - can anybody help please?

We are using Win NT 4.0 Server. The reason I want to put something in the logon script is I have spent hours trying to figure out where the entry is in ntconfig.pol. Everything was fine until we upgraded IE 5 to IE 6. Now every time a student logs on they have to put the proxy settings in IE to get on the net.

If not , you can go over to http://www.elkantler.net/security/security.htm and download a collection of policy templates that he has gathered from various places. One of those has the settings that will work with the later versions of IE. It is the ieak policy template listed under the zak administration section after you unzip them.

i don't understand; with proxy client software for winsock proxy you can define that browser receives automatic configuration. but i can't confirm those settings for proxy 1.0.

The only entry you can put into the proxy client is the name of the proxy server. I understand that the proxy client associated with proxy 1 only takes the load off the workstation cpu when cached Internet files are accessed. There is going to be a move to ISA server next month, among other changes, so I wonder if it is best to wait and see what can be done then?
