Ack, I felt like I was almost over the finish line until that bit :)

In IE (v6.0.2) when I go to Tools->Internet Options->LAN Settings there is a
checkmark next to "Automatically Detect Settings." I take this to open the
possibility that my employer has a record of my internet traffic.

Is there any way I can tell if the IE on my home PC has been using the company
proxy server while I have been connected with OpenVPN?
