I have a problem that I can't solve. When I'm at work, my PBG4 is connected to a LAN which includes a proxy server for web and mail services and I have a Network location for these settings. When I'm at home, I use my "Remote" Network setting which doesn't use any proxies. However, IE doesn't update properly and still tries to use the proxy server from my office. Consequently, I can't access localhost. The proxy preference in IE is always greyed out and seems to be controlled by the system. Interestingly enough, as soon as I make a dial-up connection from home, IE magically turns the web proxy off. From this point on, as long as I don't quit IE, I can then access localhost.
What I want is to be able to access localhost whether I'm at work or at home without frigging with settings. I've tried the "bypass proxy for the following servers" routine and nothing works. When I type "localhost" it should go to localhost dammit!
