    run gpresult to check if the policy is applied.
    If not, try running GPupdate.

    Else check the evenviewers.

      As you can see the proxy settings are not being applied. But they are clearly set in the group policy, I've doubled checked. I've used the method that is recommended in many places, that is to

      User Configuration --> Windows Settings --> Internet Explorer Maintainence --> Connection Settings and then imported the settings and modified them to suit.

      Can anyone help. No users can get internet access.

        If you have set it up correctly then maybe your replication is just being slow. If you have domain controllers at a numer of sites it can sometimes take a while for the GPO to replicate (especially if you create/modify the GPO on a DC that is not the PDC emulator) I would create a new group policy called proxy for example and modify this with your required settings and then apply this to your users. Should be easier to troubleshoot. Another good tip is to create a DNS alias for your proxy server (such as proxy). That way if you ever want to change proxy servers (or it breaks) you only have to make 1 change in DNS instead of having to modify you GP object. hope this helps

          Is the setting in the gpoStudent or Default Domain policy? Or is it in a different policy?

          If replication is the problem then you might initiate a repliation between servers in the Sites and Services console.

          And go to a workstation and do a Start > Run > gpupdate /force to make sure the policy is refreshed, then view policy events in the event viewer to see if there are errors.
