That's not really the proper way to do it. Logging on is to do your
work, NOT time to start installing dumb software. You only have to do it
once every two years, not every day!
Yes. That's the initial location.
Basically "yes". You have to put the profile on a web server and then
you can either set up AutoProxy discovery (a bit scary) or set LAN
settings to hard code to the INS path on your web server. e.g.
This is all explained in the docs.
What's not so clear, is that it's essential this is an "intRanet" server
and you don't put the FQDN. You also have to adjust SecZones in your
initial setup ot allow unsigned ActiveX controls to install in the Local
Intranet zone, otherwise your cab files won't install when you adjust
I've never tried to use multiple profiles.
Possibly using a proxy.pac file with if statements, or just hard code
each in the user's LAN settings.
All in all, I feel that what you're trying to do though - using multiple
profiles for "approved sites" could be highly impractical. You'll spend
all day updating URLs. Sites such as Yahoo use dozens of servers and
once you get into SSL and frames it will become absurd.
The IEAK works well when you just want to deploy an identical browser to
all desktops and adjust it's settings now and then (by updating the INS
file on your local web server), but for more advanced things it doesn't
really make the grade. You may have to run a real proxy server for that.
