Sorry this is slightly off-topic ...<BR><BR>I am responsible for a corporate Intranet running on IIS4 with clients using Internet Explorer 4/5. Acces to the Internet is through MS Proxy Server 2.<BR><BR>Under Tools &#062; Internet Options &#062; Connections &#062; Lan Settings I have the Automatically Detect Settings box unchecked BUT when I open IE I still get the Detecting proxy settings.. message in the bottom left corner of the browser window. This is annonying as all of the clients have the proxy settings already set and this just causes a few seconds delay before the Intranet homepage is displayed.<BR><BR>Does anybody have any idea why I still get this ? Thanks in advance.
