Any Way to Bypass Proxy for Any Local Server?
I need help understanding if there is a more general way to bypass the proxy
server for local servers or URLs that doesn't involve the "Exceptions" list
in MSIE 7.

We have the Connections settings for MSIE 7 on a local computer set to:

1) UNselect Automatic Configuration (just to test)

2) Select proxy, with the gateway/ISA IP as the proxy address

3) Select the "Bypass proxy server for local Intranet addresses"

After reading Microsoft's documentation, that "Bypass proxy server" checkbox
apparently means nothing more than just test if the URL is going to a
hostname and NOT an IP or FQDN.

So these will bypass the proxy:

http://fred
http://foo

But these will NOT bypass the proxy:

http://fred.domain.com
http://foo.domain.com
http://127.0.0.1
http://199.99.99.99 //where this is the LOCAL Computer's IP!

That behavior is just awful. The only way to circumvent the proxy when you
are no using a simple hostname in the URL is to get into Advanced settings
and specify specific URLs that are to be bypassed, which is really
cumbersome.

Is there any way we can force the proxy to be bypassed in a more general
way, such that any domain that resolves to an IP on your local network - or
direct IP in your URL that is on your local network - will not go through
proxy?
