  • Using GPO to block internet access

    I have set up a OU called no internet and added computers to it that I don't want to have internet access.

    Created a GPO inside and linked it to the OU which sets proxy settings to 0.0.0.0 and locks users from changing the settings.

    I also have GP loopback processing mode enabled. It's blocking the ability to change the settings, but not sending the proxy setting through.

    what am I missing...

    I can give screenshots if it helps.

        The policy perhaps just needed time to filter through. However, it should have taken effect when logging off and then back on again.

          An easy way to test your GPO is force replication on your DC's and then run
          gpupdate /force /boot.

          After reboot you'll know for certain if your GPO is working as expected or not.
