With & without a proxy

Hello, I am setting a laptop to use for work on a domain with a proxy to access the internet. But at home I want the laptop to be able to access the internet too. This is a WinXp Pro sp2 with IE v6. The user will not have admin rights. Do you have a viable suggestion?
Thank you

Free proxy will need to be installed by a system administrator on the work computer.(Or you can install it through safe mode). Free proxy will create you a proxy server. you can then set that up with the instructions on your laptop. If you need more detail I can help you set it up. Just tell me and I can help.

All The Best,
RCF

In my organization, youtube is blocked by IT administration by using open DNS.


Ask them why they block it.
Ask them if it's permissible to view YouTube, especially if you need it for your job.
There is probably a reason they block it; like they don't want people fooling around looking at YouTube instead of doing their work ;-P

Now if you want to watch YouTube or have access to other sites they block (and risk loosing your job) then you can use a "proxy".
You might be able to use a free proxy like http://www.torproject.org, or there are pay proxy services from around $10 USD a month.
Finally if you have internet at home you could setup your home computer to act as a "proxy server" while you are at work.

A simple Google search and you'll find dozens of really good PHP scripts on the Internet to help you create proxy servers in minutes for free. The only limitation with PHP based proxies is that you require a web server to host the proxy scripts and second, you also need a domain name to act as an address for your proxy site.
If you don't own a domain or server space, you can still create a personal proxy server for free and that too without requiring any technical knowledge.

Create a Free Proxy Server with Google App Engine Here's one such proxy site that you can build for your friends in China or even for your personal use (say for accessing blocked sites from office). This is created using Google App Engine and, contrary to what you assume, the process is quite simple.
Step 1: Go to appengine.google.com and sign-in using your Google Account.
Step 2: Click the "Create an Application" button. Since this is your first time, Google will send a verification code via SMS to your mobile phone number. Type the code and you're all set to create apps with Google App Engine.
Step 3: Choose a sub-domain* that will host your proxy server. Make sure the domain is available, agree to the Google Terms and click save. The sub-domain is also your App ID that will uniquely identify your proxy application.
For this example, we'll use labnol-proxy-server as the App ID though you are free to choose any other unique name.
Step 4: OK, now that we have reserved the ID, it's time to create and upload the proxy server application to Google App Engine. Go to python.org, download the 2.6.4 MSI Installer and install Python.

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

Error code 80072ee7 gateway non in linea


Error code explanation and possible solution This error occurs when you are not connected to the internet, check your internet connection and make sure it is working properly. The most likely cause for this problem is that your firewall does not allow Messenger to access the internet. This happens often if you install a new version of Messenger. Make sure Messenger is allowed access in your firewall rules. See our article on using Messenger through a firewall application. This error might also occur if a proxy server is enabled in Messenger or Internet Explorer while you do not use one. To remove the proxy settings, click the "Tools" menu and then "Options..." at your Messenger main window. Then in the options screen click "Connection" in the list to the left. Next, click the "Advanced Settings..." button. You can try and uncheck all checkboxes in this screen except the one labeled "TCP" to let Messenger connect through a direct connection. If that does not work you can restore the settings again by checking the boxes you unchecked before.

Laptop cannot connect to internet outside company domain using wifi at home


typically at home you don't need any proxy settings configured within internet explorer. often in a work environment proxy settings can be applied.

if you think thar you have access to modify the settings do the following;

right click the IE7 (same for IE6) icon on your desktop select properties and select internet properties on the dropdown list.

left click the "Connections" tab
left click the LAN Settings button

deselect all of the ticks (most importantly the Proxy server part)
left click OK
left click OK

then open up IE normally and see if this has worked.
note of caution though; if as you suspect group policy is pushing the settings, next time you logon to the company LAN your changes may be lost and you will need to remove the ticks again.

also if you still get no joy try leaving the Automatically detect settings ticked with the proxy part unticked.

Windows Vista home + Windows XP Professional Networking issue


Make sure domain settings to your server are correct on the notebook computer. These settings are located in the control panel of the system setting.

Whats the operating system of your server?

Make sure the firewall in windows security is turned off too. Sometimes that thing sneaks up on you.

I haven't used the home edition of Vista but another reason why it might not be working is because it isn't the business version. Microsoft might have added extra security to prevent the home version from connecting to a server. I know we use the business version of Vista at work and it is working that way on the intranet server without a problem.

I would check with Microsofts website on that.
