    Re: Force Teachers to update laptops

    Cheers guys, but I think all these solutions stop laptops connecting to the domain after x days. My task is the opposite - I want the laptop to not log on for those teachers when at home if they haven't connected to the domain. It's to force them to bring the laptops in once a week at least (they are obligated to bring them in every day - they are school property not theirs. They also have to leave them in the school over the Summer holidays)

    can't you run a local script where it picks up the IP address so:

    if left 7 IP= first 7 characters of your school range then
    allow logon

    else

    if left x IP=192.168 (i would guess) AND day=friday then
    disable logon or show prompt

    I know it's only pseudocode, but it would be something along those lines.

    The IP pickup is something i'm working on for automatically setting proxy settings when at school, but unticking proxy @ home.

    Can't you use a PROXY.PAC script in web browser config to auto determine the proxy, something like the following:

    Code:
    function FindProxyForURL(url, host)
    {
    // variable strings to return
    var proxy_yes = "PROXY 192.168.1.1:8080";
    var proxy_no = "DIRECT";
    if (shExpMatch(url, "http://www.mycompanywebsite.com*")) { return proxy_no; }
    if (shExpMatch(url, "http://www.myotherwebsite.com*")) { return proxy_no; }
    if (shExpMatch(url, "http://www.my3rdlocalsite.com*")) { return proxy_no; }
    if (shExpMatch(url, "http://192.168.1.100*")) { return proxy_no; }
    // Proxy if PC is on local LAN
    if (isInNet(myIpAddress(), "192.168.1.0", "255.255.255.0"))
    return "PROXY 192.168.1.1:8080";
    else
    return "DIRECT";
    }

    Yes, the IP address! I didn't think of that.
    Thanks for the tip, I'll use that alright. Cheers!
