Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Currently, I am only aware of the following command:

C:\>bitsadmin /util /SetIEProxy NetworkService MANUAL_PROXY 1 92.168.0.200:8080 NULL

But, it has the following defects:

  • It is deprecated
  • It does not allow to set the credentials.

My question is how can I configure the proxy settings, including the credentials using a more up-to-date tool?

EDIT

I would like to stress that I am looking for a command line utility to do that.

I have Windows 7, but ultimately I am interested in all the versions from XP up. –  mark Nov 27 '11 at 22:03

"Administrative tools for the BITS service are now provided by BITS PowerShell cmdlets." Might be worth investigating. –  Harry Johnston Nov 29 '11 at 2:12

I want a command line tool to perform a certain task. I know of a tool which satisfies the demand only partially and I wish to know if a better tool exists. I am sorry, but I do not see how your reply answers my question. –  mark Nov 24 '11 at 13:35
    
Yes, I do - read the question title. It clearly states "command prompt", which is the same as "command line" –  mark Nov 24 '11 at 15:48
