    Proxy settings

    I'm having great diffficulty getting 3 Windows 8 Ent tablets we have picking up proxy settings. I've tried using our current GPOs which set them via user config > Windows Settings> IEM, as well as trying via preferences. I've tried Windows 8 on a desktop as well, and the same issue. Running GP result shows them as not being applied, GP modelling shows they should be applied. I've trawled google, with no joy, and am about to trawl through the even logs for any clues

    Am I missing something obvious!

    Hi

    We set our proxy settings in

    user>Policies>windows settings>internet explorer maintenance>connect/proxy settings

    Please make sure you have the correct admx for your version of internet explorer.

    Cheers, that's where it's set and has been for years. I've copied the templates over from a Win 8 PC to our central store. And tried googling to see if there's any updated ones for IE10 as well - that's not looking good at the moment!

    We have had a few issues with trying to get some GPO's to apply to Windows 8 Pro machines.

    I still haven't worked out why our IE settings won't apply either.

    If you need to set proxy settings, manually configure settings then navigate to:

    Code:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings
    Make a note of the following entries:

    ProxyEnable
    ProxyServer
    ProxyOverride

    Re-create these settings under GPP and see if it works I've used this method on a few Windows 7 networks.

    Is the default still "automatically detect settings" ?

    This has always worked a treat for us as it is reasonably independent of browser and O/S

    ive never really got the internet explorer maintenance settings to work properly so have done the wpad.dat method and relied on the automatically detect settings being ticked by default!
    though i could do with having a gpo to untick this for our staff that use a different proxy.

    Internet Explorer Maintenance is not supported by IE10 see:

    Internet Explorer Maintenance Replacements

    Microsoft advises that you use GPP instead or the IEAK. I am not sure how you are setting up your GPOs but I have found it advisable to always do it through the Server tools on the new OS.

    Update: Despite the webpage saying to use the IEAK to setup IE10 I have just seen a note on the page saying that the IEAK is not available for IE10... classic.

    in my gpp it only goes up to IE 8 (win7 machien with ie9 installed) dose that mean i need to use a win 8 machien with RSAT installed on to set it that way?

    Wpad is a more universal method, as is setting it in DNS. Have you tried using the w8 rsat tools? W8 seems to be a bit squiffy with regard to gpp at the moment. We don't set the proxy here so have not encountered it.

    Might want to turn on Disable external branding of Internet Explorer (GPO under User Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Internet Explorer) - with the GPO set to disabled it can muck up a whooole load of things in IE of all versions.
