Find out which Proxy Server I am using
One of our users asked:
Is there a way to find out which proxy I am using if Internet Options are disabled by Group Policy?
There are couple of ways to find out which proxy server you’re using.
Here’s how to find out the proxy server address using Command Prompt.
Hit Win ORB | Type CMD | Click Enter
In the command prompt window type the following:
reg query “HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings” | find /i “proxyserver”
Or you can use tools like Ethereal or Wireshark to sniff for the network traffic and this way found out the address of the proxy server, although this could be a problem if you don’t have appropriate permissions to install third party software.
