    Problem with Proxy settings in GPO

    I have our Proxy settings configured in the Default Domain Policy in the User section.It points to our ISA box on the network. Today one room needed internet access removing for a exam. SO for a quick fix i just edited the corresponding room GPO and put some false address in the GPO. This worked fine and the kids had no internet.

    On the afternoon i edited the Room GPO and took out the flase address and also the tick to use Proxy settings. I then did a GPUPDATE /FORCE on the server and told the kids to reboot the machines. Trouble is after several reboots the internet settings had not been picked up and still no internet.


    Have i missed somthing?

    Re: Problem with Proxy settings in GPO

    Ive had this trouble before with the proxy and trying to control the internet with it. There are a few settings you can look at to help. One that forces it to check for any changes I think (strange setting if you ask me!!) everytime.

    Sometimes running gpupdate on the client sorts this out - don't know why though. Obviously on 2000 & XP.

    Can you run gpupdate on a client remotely?

    I use rpkiller to turn the internet off, saves so much hassle!

    Re: Problem with Proxy settings in GPO

    I am still having this problem even after running gpudate on the client. I also edited the Default DOmain Policy to a false address, ran GPupdate, so it would refresh down to all the OU's then I changed it back to the correct settings and it still is not working in the room i changed.

    It might be worth your while using the Group Policy Modelling Wizard to see which GPOs are being applied to the computers/users of this room.

    Security Filters and WMI filters come to mind too. The GPMC will reveal any problems though including filter issues.
