Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 598900
NM should automatically handle network proxy details.

Description of problem:
I work at a number of locations (schools in my case) where they have wireless and wired connections along with specific network proxy setups.
At the moment as I move from site to site I have to go to System > Preferences > Network Proxy and select the appropriate settings for the site I'm at. While this isn't complex, you have to remember to do it.
It would be fantastic if the 'Network Connections' settings included a Proxy Settings tab for each connection that allowed you to select from your Network Proxy Settings above and which it automatically used when you connect.
I guess it would make sense that when you disconnect, the Network Proxy Settings returned to 'default' again, so that you don't have to specify the proxy settings for each connection type.
Obviously, it might be nice to prompt for Proxy Settings when adding new connections, but some sort of limited proxy management would be a huge bonus for those of us with a range of proxy settings at various sites.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Current f13 NM, but really current NW I guess.
