Hi guys

Don't know if I can do anything about this, but thought one of you may have
an idea.

I've just set up a company intranet, and changed the GPO settings to set it
as the home page instead of Google as we had before.

However my laptop users have pointed out the following. When they are out of
the office and connect to the internet via dial up, they open up Internet
Explorer and it obviously comes up with a page not found error, as they are
no longer on the network.

Can anyone think of a way that I can have their homepage as the intranet
while on the network, but when starting up without a network connect it
changes to something else.

Regards

Phil

Alter the foollowing .reg files per your needs.

Create a batch file and place a minimized shortcut to it on their start menu.

The batch file would contain:

@echo off
cd /d c:\folder
if /i "%LOGONSERVER:~2%" EQU "%COMPUTERNAME%" regedit /s Roadint.reg
if /i "%LOGONSERVER:~2%" NEQ "%COMPUTERNAME%" regedit /s Homeint.reg


where HomeInt.reg contains:
REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\internet Explorer\Main]
"Start Page"="http://www.jsiinc.com/default.html"

and RoadInt.reg contains:

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\internet Explorer\Main]
"Start Page"="http://JSI001/default.html"
