IE use proxy server greyed out

If you are viewing this blog entry you are trying to change the proxy setting in IE and the attributes are Disabled “Greyed Out”.  I was looking for this solution becuase my one client had internet access:

  • I could ping
  • I could tracert
  • Full intranet access
  • All other computer on the intranet had internet access

Her IE browser was just not connecting to anything.  On investigating.  Tools->Internet Options->Connections-> LAN Settings  the Use proxy server box was checked and unfortunately grayed out, so could not be unchecked.  Upon research I found a tool for altering the Proxy configuration.  This worked like a dream.  If the link stops working let me know I will make arrangements to get the tool to our blog users.
