Question about Microsoft Internet Explorer 7

1 Answer

"use a proxy server for your lan (These settings will not apply..

I have had different users not be able to load webpages in Internet Explorer due to the setting "use a proxy server for your lan (These settings will not apply to dial-up or vpn connections)" being enabled under the connection tab in Tools, Internet Options.

I can have people go in and uncheck the box easy enough, but I haven't come across what causes it (it's usually occurring on a Windows Active Directory domain).

Does anyone have any advice on what causes it?

Thanks

I assume you find this in Tools, Internet Options, Connections, LAN. This proxy server setting is only used when you are working through a network at a school or company. You need to have the checkmark next to "automatically detect settings" if you work through most broadband connections like cable or DSL.
Now, if you have the "automatic" checked and the Proxy check appears anyway, this must mean that you have some program that is trying to connect to some network or call home somehow. This could be a virus. Do you have a good AV program? Be careful because many of the websites that say they want to check your system are actually virus downloaders.

I can't get my LAN settings to automatically detect settings, box will not check.


Reset your proxy settings
Proxy servers, or proxies, act as intermediary servers between a Web browser and the Internet. According to Microsoft's website, proxies are mainly used by networks in companies to enhance the security and speed of their network connection.
Proxy servers can also be used to log Internet usage, mask the network address of a server or to apply global restrictions to a network.
Internet Explorer is set to automatically detect proxy servers by default.
You can reset the Internet Explorer proxy settings to their default settings from the "Internet Options" configuration.

I have found the easiest way to do this is to add the menu to the top of a webpage.
Create the menu tab on your homepage right click in the top toolbar you should see a number of toolbar options select the menu tab which will add File Edit View Favorites Tools and Help
Click on tools option then from the drop down list Internet Options
Select the "Connections" tab, and click the "LAN Settings" button.
Delete the proxy server address and port from the "Proxy Server" settings and clear the "Use a proxy server for your LAN" check box.


Clear the check box beside the "Automatically detect settings" and "Use automatic configuration script" options in the "Automatic Configuration" section of the "LAN Settings" dialog window. Click "OK."
Click "Apply" and then "OK" to save these changes and close the "Internet Options" dialog window.
Close all Internet Explorer browser windows for these changes to take effect.

Launch Internet Explorer

Click the Connections tab
Click the LAN Settings button
Make sure that that "Use a proxy server for your LAN" checkbox is unchecked
Click OK till you are out of everything, and then close Internet Explorer
Try again in iTunes to load the store

Okay, I found the solution when running CA Security Center for me. You need to open your Parental Controls - Advanced Settings. In the user/default tabs select Web Filters. The select "Custom List" under the allowed section. Then add the following sites individually: itunes.apple.com, ax.itunes.apple.com, albert.apple.com Be sure to select the checkbox to allow the entire domain. Then restart iTunes.

You most likely are not using a proxy server. Ensure your settings mirror the above, especially the "Use a proxy server..." setting.

Not able to apply the proxy settings for internet explorer


Hi,

Open Microsoft Internet Explorer and from the 'Tools' menu select 'Internet Options'. from the 'tools' menu.

Select the 'Connections' tab.

Select 'LAN Settings'. In the 'Proxy server' section select 'Use a proxy server for LAN ..., enter your proxy address, and enter port 8080. 'Bypass proxy server for local addresses' is selected if you are accessing network resources through a intranet. When complete, select OK twice.
NOTE:

After you apply your settings to the web browser test your Internet connection by attempting to access an external Web site such as http://www.google.com. Test more than one Web site. If you are unable to access external Internet resources, verify the spelling of your entries. If spelling is correct, contact your company's helpdesk to find out if there is a problem with the corporate proxy server.



Regards.

I've installed Explorer 8, but then it cannot display any webpage.


Hi there,

Which is the operating system?
Have you checked for the proxy servers?
Often times a piece of Malware will change your Proxy Settings to intercept all communications from your Computer. If you have cleaned an infection, and are still experiencing trouble loading web pages your Proxy Settings may have been changed. To check these settings do the following (Pictures taken from Windows 7, other versions have similar steps):


In the Control Panel click "Network and Internet."holygrass_5.jpg
On the subsequent menu select "Internet Options." This will open the Internet Properties menu. (This is the same menu as the one accessed through Internet Explorer. I feel safer with this method though, as not opening IE will prevent a browser misdirect. Also note, these settings can affect all browsers)
Click on the Connections tab
.holygrass_6.jpg
Click the LAN settings Button. You can now see the Proxy Settings


Most home users will simply want to un-check the box next to "Use a proxy server..." If you connecting through a legitimate proxy you will instead need to contact your network administrator for the actual address to enter here.


Click okay


Click okay
