howdy,

does anyone know if or how dhcp can be used to specify web proxy settings for client pc's? we're installing a proxy server and we want the traffic to route through the server automatically.

thanks in advance for any replies!

I believe it can be set here:
User Settings -> Windows Settings -> Internet Explorer Maintenance ->Connection.

Point to the right server and port number as well as bypass proxy server for local addresses

That should do it :)

You can only use Policies if you are using Internet Explorer. Someone using Firefox/Opera/Netscape will not be affected by the policy change and their traffic will not route through your proxy server.

There are some ADM files that I found that allow you to set settings in firefox through policies... namely:

and

But I have never used them so I can't comment how well they work.

or have them install firefox on coreload firefox will then pull in the proxys during install IF you let it pulls in IE settings. Thats what we do.. though we dont official support firefox.

I'm moving towards 100% non-admin priveleges. Everyone operates as a user, can't install/change nothing :smoker:

Sorry for being vague.
In some OUs we have proxy enforced and it seems to work ok, I think the exception could be server 2003 or anything that uses enhanced security, I remember it warning me the policies were different?

You can also use the IEAK to reinstall Internet Explorer with particular settings in place. I have done this and also prompted it not to reboot (as part of a post install) so if you are stuck give me a shout.

I forgot to mention that about half the users use FireFox :) Thanks for your replies everyone! I'll give the suggestions a try!
