  • GPO - Assigning Proxy Connection settings does not apply to browser

    I have been working on a GPO to apply proxy settings to user IE7/8 browsers. The policy is applied after running rsop.msc but the browser is not pointing to the proxy.

    I've reviewed a number of MS articles.

    I was hoping the policy would apply and this would be straight forward but there is obviously some compatibility issue.

    1. Domain Controllers are 2003/2008.
    2. Windows XP clients
    3. Using User Configuration\Internet Explorer settings

    I can manually point proxy IP address to our Forefront TMG and everything works. It is just NOT pplying the policy to the browser.

    Does anyone have solution?

    Hi there

    Couple of questions

    1. Are there any inherited policies that could be overwriting your ie policy?
    2. On the client run gpresult - is the policy applying?

    Cheers
    Richard

      I have resolved the issue. The problem was that the Default Domain policy had settings configured under \User Configuration\Internet Explorer Maintenance.......although it did not have the proxy connection settings defined it was still overriding the manually created Proxy server policy because the container itself had policies defined in it

      Looking at the User Configuration policies created at the Default Domain policy level I decided I could do without them at that level and created a separate policy for them. Once I did that I was able to use my Proxy server policy.

      Thanks for jumping in
