Auto login to proxy server using FF, Safari and IE
We are considering using a web service to filter web content at our office. This means that all browsers (FF (Win), Safari (Mac) and IE (Win)) point to a proxy server that does all the filtering.
Every time a browser is launched a pop up box (not a form) appears requesting a user name and password. The password can be saved.
However, we would like the credentials to automatically pass to the proxy server, so that the user can automatically browse the web.
Does anyone know how to set this up for any of the three browsers?It has yet to be proven that intelligence has any survival value.

Have you tried contacting the web service?
They can probably create an IP and MAC list
filter to allow automatic use of the internet.

The thing is that each PC will use different policies for filtering content. i.e. management PCs will have more or less full access all the time and others restricted access according to the time of day. I'm not sure that the MAC list for each PC will work because PC MACs will not necessarily be seen outside the network? Won't the MAC of the router be the only one seen?
There must be a way of setting up auto credentials for browsers, just like auto login on PC start up...
Also, roaming users will also have different public IPs, especially if they have dynamic IP with their own ISPs.
Anyway, the web services company did send me a plugin, but it didn't work... They have asked a tech to contact me about this, so I'm waiting...It has yet to be proven that intelligence has any survival value.

This can also be ported over to Opera.
