Silly RegWrite/Proxy problem

3 posts in this topic

I am trying to create a little script for myself that will change the proxy when I am at work to use the proxy there, or disable it when I get home.

Here is the code:

#include <Inet.au3>
$PublicIP = _GetIP()
If $PublicIP = "XXX.110.170.5" then
    RegWrite("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings","ProxyServer","REG_SZ","proxy02.XXXX.com:8080")
    RegWrite("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings", "ProxyEnable","REG_DWORD", 1)
Else
    RegWrite("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings", "ProxyEnable","REG_DWORD", 0)
EndIf

For some reason, if the proxy is enabled (1) this code works fine, but if I manually go in and set the ProxyEnable to "0", the script hangs and never completes.

Does this make any sense?

The current Beta has an updated remarks section for the _GetIP() function:

Remarks

This only returns the Public IP address of a computer or network (i.e. the public IP on the WAN link of your NAT router). The address is determined by accessing an external IP discovery web site like checkip.dyndns.org or www.whatismyip.com.

If you can't reach one of those external IP discovery sites, you have to wait for some long timeouts before you get an error back.

If you are sensing home/work status by the IP on the computer, just use the @IPAddress1 macro instead.

Ahh - It makes sense now. Once I disable the Proxy, the GetIP bombs out because it can't reach the external site...

Thanks.
