    Idiot's guide To set proxy Settings for ie10

    Hi All

    I understand and have seen on a previous thread with regards to ie10 not setting proxy settings via group policy etc.

    Can anyone try and talk me through how to get this up and running? We're using windows server 2008r2

    will this affect computers that are still running ie9?

    Haven't done much before with regards to group policy and registry editing etc, so want to make sure i get it right.

    Thanks for any help

    I have had serious problems getting proxy settings to apply through group policy, It seems very flaky and random. In the end I had to apply the proxy setting through a .reg file that is scripted to run at login.

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings]
    "MigrateProxy"=dword:00000001
    "ProxyEnable"=dword:00000001
    "ProxyHttp1.1"=dword:00000000
    "ProxyServer"="yourproxy:yourport"
    "ProxyOverride"="<local>"
    You could save that as a .reg file and import that through a batch file. (make sure to add your own proxy info)

    Or you can use GPP Registry Entries to replace these keys each time a user logs in - that's how I got it to work into end.

    I make a new policy at domain level, or OU if applicable.
    Make the policy "enforced" if you want to.

    go to preferences / registry, and paste this in:

    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <RegistrySettings clsid="{A3CCFC41-DFDB-43a5-8D26-0FE8B954DA51}"><Registry clsid="{9CD4B2F4-923D-47f5-A062-E897DD1DAD50}" name="ProxyEnable" status="ProxyEnable" image="11" changed="2013-10-29 12:12:41" uid="{38AB5481-FD96-454F-90A0-EB9D68D933EC}"><Properties action="R" displayDecimal="0" default="0" hive="HKEY_CURRENT_USER" key="Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings" name="ProxyEnable" type="REG_DWORD" value="00000001"/></Registry>
    	<Registry clsid="{9CD4B2F4-923D-47f5-A062-E897DD1DAD50}" name="ProxyOverride" status="ProxyOverride" image="6" changed="2013-10-29 12:13:52" uid="{C7B2E34A-F7AB-46CA-8E8B-5B406EAAF8E0}"><Properties action="R" displayDecimal="0" default="0" hive="HKEY_CURRENT_USER" key="Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings" name="ProxyOverride" type="REG_SZ" value="&lt;local&gt;;192.168.*"/></Registry>
    	<Registry clsid="{9CD4B2F4-923D-47f5-A062-E897DD1DAD50}" name="ProxyServer" status="ProxyServer" image="6" changed="2013-10-29 12:18:15" uid="{BFEC9B0C-6EAD-4741-B7AF-D846E4BBA278}"><Properties action="R" displayDecimal="0" default="0" hive="HKEY_CURRENT_USER" key="Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings" name="ProxyServer" type="REG_SZ" value="http=proxy:8080;https=proxy:8080;ftp=proxy:8080"/></Registry>
    	<Registry clsid="{9CD4B2F4-923D-47f5-A062-E897DD1DAD50}" name="Start Page" status="Start Page" image="6" changed="2013-11-07 11:00:05" uid="{BE98B10E-7BD5-4B8E-BCE9-054F4426BE1C}"><Properties action="R" displayDecimal="0" default="0" hive="HKEY_CURRENT_USER" key="Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main" name="Start Page" type="REG_SZ" value="http://intranet/"/></Registry>
    </RegistrySettings>
    You will probably want to edit the "proxy:8080" and "intranet" parts to suit your network.

    I then delete any IEAK folders from the policies folder in sysvol so there are no conflicts. This removes the .ins file that used to do the job.

    Do check your policies first before you go deleting stuff!

    Easiest way I found? Move to a proxy pac/WPAD.dat file, hosted on a web server and pointed to via DHCP option 252.

    That way, you don't need to change anything in IE, it will automatically use those settings.

    That's exactly what we do. Server2008 but upgraded to IE10 so it lost GPP settings for IE9.
    Reg. keys applied on login via GPP to everyone but the IT Tech group.

    edit: We also have a proxy.pac file set up, just to be safe.

    I set up an Internet Maintenance GPP for IE8.
    Then go to C:/Windows/Sysvol/domain/policies and search for "InternetSettings.xml". (Still on the DC)
    Edit that and look for something along the lines of "Max version" which should say "8.0.0.0".
    Change that to something like "11.9.9.9" so you don't need to worry about it for some time.
