Teacher laptops / Internet at home
I am trying to give staff access to internet on their school laptops at home but am running in to a problem. I have experimented with vbs scripts and with pac files and have since decided I prefer the proxy pac method.
IE6 with all latest updates installed and used in all instances;
So, here is my proxy code (I have replaced my domain with 'mydomain' in all parts of this post)
This works flawlessly at home with one exception - the school OWA (may be worth noting that I had the same problem when using a VBS script also).
function FindProxyForURL(url, host)
!isInNet(myIpAddress(), "10.112.0.0", "255.255.0.0") ||
isInNet(host, "10.112.0.0", "255.255.0.0") ||
dnsDomainIs(host, ".mydomain.local") ||
return "PROXY myproxy:8080";
https://mail.mydomain.com/owa returns a 404 page (not expected)
https://mail.mydomain.com/ returns a default IIS page (expected)
http://mail.mydomain.com/owa returns the page saying can only be accessed with https etc (expected)
https://188.8.131.52/ returns default IIS page (expected)
https://184.108.40.206/owa gives me email working perfectly (expected)
nslookup resolves IP address correctly for OWA external address
I have checked that hosts file does not contain any entries for 'mydomain', I have checked intranet/restricted/trusted zones in IE and mydomain is not listed.
Exchange 2007 installed on Server 2003 Enterprise
Any other information I'm missing?
Anyone come across this anomaly? Have I missed something very obvious?
