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

I assume you have windows XP on it. Go into the control panel and internet options. then go to the connections tab. Dot the "Never dial a connection " Then go into "Lan Settings" and untick the "Proxy Server" box. You can leve the "automatically Detect settings" ticked. Click on apply and ok and all should work now.

I have a school laptop and sites like facebook, yahoo, myspace are all blocked sites, how can i access them.


The best way to do that would be to use a proxy server, but that might be blocked by the school too. You could run a proxy server at home, and set up your laptop to use that proxy to connect to the internet so that the internet traffic will be routed through your home. But you could get into trouble with school authorities for doing that.

Hello,
In command prompt (with admin privleges)
Try to ping a domain name. For example:

ping youtube.com

Does it list an IP address? Do you get reply's? If you get replys then the internet on your son's laptop should be working. Try and make sure there are no proxies setup. Its a brand new laptop so there shouldn't be but check anyways.

In Internet Explorer goto tools, internet options, connections tab, lan settings button. Make sure the box use a proxy server for your LAN is unchecked.

If you don't get an ip address or reply's it would most likely signify that your DNS settings are incorrect. Verify the correct DNS settings by typing in 'ipconfig /all' in command prompt. It will show what your DNS ip address is set to. Make sure the settings are the same on the other laptop.

If they mismatch then you may have some settings incorrect in your wireless router, or the laptop itself, or both.

The ideal solution in that case is to resolve the dns issue on the wireless router, but for a quick solution, you can set the router to be the DNS host on the laptop. The process for doing so is OS specific. A quick google search should lead in the right direction.

If further problems persist, it may be a problem with the OS itself, or the hosts file.

Good Luck

Proxy browsing


If you are on a domain, you can use a group policy to set and lock this box from becoming unchecked, and if they are a laptop user you can set it to if they are in a ceratin OU you can only allow laptop user to uncheck this box, so when they take it home tey can browse the internet.
Hope this helps, If so please rate accordingly. Thanks, David

Unblock blocked websites


It depends on where you're at and how they are blocked. Generally the solution is to set up a proxy server that is not on a blocked network that you can access from over the internet. For example, if you have AT&T U-verse internet at home, at to access MySpace from work, where it's blocked. You could set up a proxy on your home computer, configure your AT&T router to pass traffic from the internet to that proxy, and then from your work computer, you would configure your browser to use your home computers IP address as a proxy. What this does is routes all traffic from your work computer to your home computer. If you utilize SSL for this connection, it's 100% encrypted and your employer only sees you accessing your home computer, they can't see what data is passing between.

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.
