PS Network Profile Manager
Networks come with a variety of settings and connection options, all of which influence the way you are able to connect to other computers or to the Internet. In the case of larger companies or corporations, various proxy servers are used, which require special browser and network configurations in order to function accordingly.
Create multiple network profiles for different proxy servers
PS Network Profile Manager is a useful software utility that enables you to tackle these issues with ease, by creating separate network profiles for each of the proxy servers you happen to use on a regular basis. In addition, these can also be configured to automatically take over once they detect any change in the IP, DNS or gateway settings of the new connection.
These profiles can easily be created by specifying a name for them and the queries to be performed once the connection is available. In essence, the queries check for a match in the wireless SSID, IP address or DNS suffix, which differ every time you connect to another network. Once the verification process is complete, the profile is activated, along with its specific settings.
Perform various actions after the profile is activated
Depending on the type of network you connect to, the application allows you to perform system changes and execute various commands after the profile is changed. Hence, you can automatically modify the settings of your preferred Internet browser, such as Internet Explorer or Firefox, by changing the proxy server used for LAN connections and the preferred home page.
In addition, you can also change your desktop wallpaper, manage the screensaver options and remap the network drives using customized labels. For more experienced users, there is also the option to run a specific command once the change is detected, as well as execute a program or a script each time a certain network becomes available.
All in all, thanks to the wide array of options and customization possibilities, PS Network Profile Manager is a software utility that can be very useful in a multitude of situations, especially if you happen to connect to many networks every day and you need to handle separate settings for each of them.
