    Group Policy - Proxy Server for your local LAN

    In IE under Tools \ Internet Options \ Connections \ LAN Settings is the option to use a proxy server for your local LAN (these settings will not apply to dial-up or VPN connections)

    but for the life of me I cannot find this option under group policy
    I'm on a windows 2003 R2 SP2 server with the latest IE ADM installed.

    are these workstations being logged in as an administrator or the local machine? if so you might need to set it in the default domain policy at the top of the policy tree

    The settings have been placed into the default domain policy

    Ive logged into the machine as both Domain Administrator and Domain User.

    Dont edit the default domain policy make a new one at the same level. If you cock something up at least it is easily repaired!

    Re: Group Policy - Proxy Server for your local LAN

    PC's with Windows XP Service Pack 2 applied will not apply Internet Explorer Maintenance settings if Folder Redirection settings are also applied. See Microsoft Knowledge Base article # 888254 for more information. This is article is somewhat confusing in that it states (as of the January 28, 2005 revision):

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/888254

    "You cannot set the Folder Redirection policy setting on a Microsoft Windows XP-based computer that also uses Group Policy settings to customize Microsoft Internet Explorer."

    In fact, the Folder Redirection settings are applied correctly, but the Internet Explorer Maintenance settings are ignored.
