Michael thanks too many computers to go round. That's why we did it via the gp
I suppose the alternative is don't deploy IE10 before you have a 2012 R2 server in place, but this is difficult as Exchange 2013 works best with IE10.
indeed. Most primary schools cannot afford new servers while 2008 r2 is working fine. for Microsoft to remove this policy is stupid or clever forcing to upgrade depending where you sit.
You only have to uninstall IE10 on the machine you make the group policies on.
Everyone else can be upgraded I think.
Create a new GPO called Proxy Settings (Registry) I call it.
Open the policy and navigate to: User Config > Preferences > Windows Settings > Registry
Copy the following screenshots, but just change the proxy name and exceptions as required :)
Now link the GPO and it should add proxy settings in for IE10 :)
That's great thank you very much :)
I will try that as soon as I am back onsite
And yes, I suspect more than likely this will work with IE11 too :)
No problem, hope it works for you too.
Sorry just one more question.
When this is applied would the staff be able to use there local account at home without proxy or will this set the proxy for all users including the local .\user?
It'll only work for domain logged in users. Not accounts that sign in locally whether they're at school or home.
That's perfect :)
Thanks for confirming this for me
would this setting work for a proxy.pac url configuration ? would i change the entry in your last screen shot to http://brunel.flhs.local/ws1000.pac for example?
