proxycfg & netsh winhttp show proxy


If you use Windows 7 or above the proxycfg command won´t work. Instead you can you netsh with the following syntax:

C:\netsh winhttp show proxy

Howto find out the proxy configuration, if all IE security options are invisible and disabled ?

Good question and the answer took me 2 hours of search on the net. The answer is so damn simple, that I felt a bit annoyed after I found it:;en-us;830605
