If you have the requirement for alternative proxies for different protocols, you can set the "ProxyServer" value to
or a variation to suit your network.
if you have wpad location in auto config script from user config but (different) proxy setting settings set in machine policies, which takes precedence?
Machine policies always win over User.
First off, thanks to Michael for the fix, worked a treat on the Win 7 clients joined to my Server 2003 DC.
Am also having trouble getting the Bypass Check Box ticked, does anyone know which key this is controlled by?
The checkbox does not work so you need to add the local servers manually by name.
I've applied all above, I've removed the GPO and created a new one but am still having problems. I've set as above a GPP to set the proxy settings and it does turn up in the registry but when I try and go online it fails. if I set the information manually it works, and the manual settings appear in registry.
we run WIN7 an Server 2008R2
I tried EVERYTHING to get proxy settings and other settings working with IE10 and nothing worked.
I tried GPO's, scripts and reg keys and none of them worked.
In the end, I remade our Windows 7 images with IE9 and now it works perfectly. Atleast now it will buy me some time to look into it before trying the upgrade again.
It caused havoc as no-one could get onto the internet!
I had this problem, the school I work in works fine on IE9, as soon as we upgraded to IE10, proxy would not apply. Group policy doesn't work on IE10 and above in server 2008 r2, I have tested using server 2012 and the group policy applies fine. Microsoft haven't really thought about people who are still using server 2008 and older systems. You can use, WPAD by setting settings via DHCP and IIS, Using PAC settings. there are plenty of ways if you search google. But I would recommend staying with IE9, of everything works fine why bother changing it.
I recommend rolling back to IE9 too as everything works fine in IE9. We have Server 2012 on our DC and IE10 settings still don't work.
Ie10 works in our testing. Its all the 3rd party sites that have to work which will delay it. We had to setup a win 8.1 vm to manage the gpp. Then we have to press f5 to change the proxy setting to have a green underline.
We tested the gpp internet settings. We had to setup a win 8.1 vm to manage it. It worked fine. We found you had to press f5 on some of the settings to enable them.
