After you install Microsoft Windows Server 2003, the automatic configuration and proxy setting information for each connection may be different from the information that is used for the local area network (LAN) connection.
In Microsoft Internet Explorer 5 or later, each connection uses its own automatic configuration and proxy settings. In Microsoft Internet Explorer 6, this functionality is different. Windows Server 2003 includes Internet Explorer 6.
Because you may require the automatic configuration or proxy settings of your connections to be the same as the LAN settings, Microsoft has provided a supported design-change "fix" in the form of a hotfix. You can use this hotfix to set all the automatic configuration and proxy settings of your connections that are blank or that are not set for each connection to the LAN settings.

Installation instructionsAfter you apply this hotfix, you must create a new DWORD registry entry that is named DialupUseLanSettings and then set its value to 1 to correctly implement the fix. The entry's location in the registry depends on whether you want to use a per-computer setting or a per-user setting:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINEhive first, and then it checks in the
HKEY_CURRENT_USERhive. It uses the first enabled value that it finds.
Note You only have to create this entry in one location.
To create the entry, follow these steps.
Important This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.
