    HI all,

    A question has come up in my office on how could we get out user clients (outside office- own entities) using the proxy server @ work and when at home use there own dialup or adsl connection there without changing a thing. Alot of the time they don't use proxy at home just straight connection.

    Would IE's (up to date) Auto detect settings cater for this?

    We use 2000/XP for out laptops and when at home login using work logins (working offline) so everything is all in one user. (Have to make it easy for them)

    I can write doco's on it and most likely it won't be used and because working with different schools and having no direct way of minitoring each school each day 24/7 I would like to provide a solution for my ICT's with your help?

    *It has to be all in one username (Work Domain)
    *No changes by user to me made/ plugNplay
    *2000 Server mainly in schools ATM but later on moving to 2003

    Can anyone suggest any webpage to read up on or is it at simple as yes it will work? I ask because I just got back to work and someone else was researching it and said it involved registry settings etc. Just would like to clarify this as well.

    Thankyou for your time.

    Regards

    Phil
