  • GPO - Proxy settings

    Have a weird one here.

    Have created a new proxy server GPO.

    Applied it to an OU where all the users belong to.

    GPO is at user level, for the IE connection settings.

    Some machines, the proxy settings have not changed, even though they have the GPO applied.

    On those machines, I have logged in as other people, but no luck.

    Tried those other random users on different machines that work, and the proxy settings are applied.

    Really strange.

    Any thoughts? Have even restarted the machines and no luck

    Have you tried RSoP to make sure the policy is being applied?

      Ossian,

      No I haven't, will need to check it out.

      Ran a GP result and it shows as applied, but clearly not.

      Done a test, I have changed the browser title and re-applied that separate policy.

      It's changed the browser title on the machines that the proxy settings have not.

      There is no logic behind this.

      Damn.

          Hi,

          Sorry for the delayed response.

          10% IE6
          80% IE7
          10%IE8



          It's a bit strange.

          Thanks,

            We use a login script applied by GPO to do this. The script contains the following:

            Code:
            regedit /s proxy.reg
            Here's the registry info that is imported using the login script:

            Code:
            Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
            [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings]
            "User Agent"="Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Win32)"
            "IE5_UA_Backup_Flag"="5.0"
            "NoNetAutodial"=dword:00000000
            "MigrateProxy"=dword:00000001
            "EmailName"="[email protected]"
            "AutoConfigProxy"="wininet.dll"
            "MimeExclusionListForCache"="multipart/mixed multipart/x-mixed-replace multipart/x-byteranges "
            "WarnOnPost"=hex:01,00,00,00
            "UseSchannelDirectly"=hex:01,00,00,00
            "EnableHttp1_1"=dword:00000001
            "PrivacyAdvanced"=dword:00000000
            "EnableNegotiate"=dword:00000001
            "ProxyEnable"=dword:00000001
            "EnableAutodial"=dword:00000000
            "PrivDiscUiShown"=dword:00000001
            "WarnOnZoneCrossing"=dword:00000000
            "ProxyServer"="proxy.ourdomain.com:8000"
            This works for IE6 through IE 8
