    We use a proxy at the office and we want the NOD32 on our laptops to update both inside and outside the office. Since outside the office our laptop users are using no or another proxy, this causes a problem.

    So: Can we set the proxy settings of NOD32 to autodetect the proxy settings of our network?

    B.t.w, the windows Internet Options are set to auto-detect the proxy settings of the network.

    No, it's technically possible to automatically detect proxy server settings only during installation due to restrictions / limitations of the OS.

    In this scenario you can set up a dual profile, one for a proxy and one without.

    Instructions are here:

    (the instructions are for LAN-based update and Internet-based update, but it works just as well for two intenet-based updates).

    This is how ours looks - see below.

    Yes, the dual profile seems to work.
    Thank you!
