How to set IE Proxy settings to use "Automatically detect settings" using vbscript or reg?

Good day all,
is it possible to set IE proxy settings on clients via registry key or via
vbscript?
I have just put in place wpad settings via dhcp to supply clients with our
Isa proxy settings but i need a manner of deploying/setting IE proxy
settings to automatically detect. I tried looking for info for using a
registry key but it looks like this setting isnt stored under a simple turn
to "1" (on) value.

Any help/info would be greatly appreciated.

John

Hi John,

I'm looking into doing something similar myself so thought rather than
start a new thread I'd bump your thread and we can both find the
answers we need!

What I'm after is that when I'm in the office I need to add in my
office ISA firewall server proxy settings to IE but then once out of
the office I need to be on "automatically detect". At the moment I do
this manually but it would be real nice to be able to have a script to
do this for us.

Bit of googling and some Registry searching locates the proxy settings
for IE in HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Int ernet
Settings. Just need to work out now, how to change the ProxyServer
registry key value via a script that I can have on my desktop.

Best regards

Simon

Never tried it before, but you should be able to use two .reg files to
accomplish this. In other words, once you set your Proxy setting in the
office, export that registry key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Internet
Settings
and name something like "Use ISA Proxy.reg" and save it to your desktop.

Likewise, when you make the at home change to "Automatically Detect", export
that key again and name it something like "No Proxy.reg" and save it to the
desktop.

Then use those two .reg files to merge the changes for you depending on
which settings you want to use.

As always, make sure you back up your registry before making any changes.

Good luck,
