Software Client, switch static ip to dynamic + proxy server

by thephiladelphiakid / August 10, 2007 3:39 AM PDT

Hi all,

I have been searching for a while now for an easy to use program for my clients, whereby they can change their work environment notebooks from the static IP and proxy server settings they need to the dynamic IP and non-proxy server environments they would need on their home/public networks. I need an easy to use toggle switch type application that would preserve their assigned static IP address and proxy server at the office, but could switch them to a dynamic IP and no proxy server when they are home, then back again. Has anyone found a solution to this that they could pass on? It would be very appreciated.

I've noted netswitcher.com

Most of the time (all?) it doesn't require a reboot.

-> About that proxy server. Very few use that but set it on a case by case basis.
