Just another ignorant weirdo from Antwerp, Belgium
trying to make sense out of it all
Getting tired of switching your Internet Explorer proxy settings every time you plug your laptop in your home network after a day's work? Or when connecting to the corporate VPN that uses yet another proxy server? Then I've got the tool for you...
Proxy Monitor is a small application that monitors the network and auto-detects the internet proxy server to use. It can be started as a regular application, which will make it run as an icon in the system notification area. When started, it will auto-detect the proxy server to use. It will also automatically re-detect the proxy server when the computer’s network address has changed. The application can also be run from the command-line with the /detect flag to auto-detect the proxy and exit immediately (e.g. when the computer starts up).
It's taken me a while to release this tool, but the good news is that I've been using it every day for over two months so I guess that counts as an extensive beta period
