What is the easiest way to see if Internet Explorer (on Windows 7) has a proxy configured, IF you don't have access to the LAN settings dialog box because of company policy etc?
I've tried using online tools such as http://whatismyipaddress.com/proxy-check. Although it reports 'no proxy', I think there is one configured, as a python-based program can not connect to google.com. Using IE it connects fine to any website however.
I've also considered wiresharking, but I want to avoid setting it up (need hub, etc.).
