I had to solve the same problem here for some roaming laptop users who
dialed into outside ISPs occasionally.

// If the client is not on our private network (such as a roaming
// client), do not use the proxy server.
if (!isInNet(myIpAddress(), "", ""))
        return "DIRECT";

[the remaining code goes here...]

If the client does NOT have an address of 192.168.*, it returns
DIRECT, otherwise it falls through to the remaining code which tells
it to use the proxy.
