Using a Firewall with DHCP

Using a Firewall with DHCP

Using a Firewall with DHCP

I currently have about 70 users using dhcp and connecting to the internet through proxy server.  I am planning on removing Proxy Server (it is causing problems with Exchange 2000) and installing a SonicWall Firewall.  Right now my users have IE configured to use a proxy server to connect to the internet.  My question is, when I take proxy server away and install the firewall, how do I configure IE to connect to the internet??  Thanks.

RE: Using a Firewall with DHCP

I'm guessing you'll find the awnser in the firewalls documentation.  Let us know.  Thanks.

RE: Using a Firewall with DHCP

I am not sure if I know what you meant here... But if you don't have a proxy server, than just unchecked "use a proxy server for you LAN".  If the question is depth and require a more in depth answer, please explain.  I have work with SonicWall before and it is pretty straight forward...
