Group Policy and net filtering with .PAC file
I have a usergroup called NOPRIVS which restricts pupil usage. They only get a small number of apps and their internet is restricted to just a handful of sites, dictated in the NONET.PAC file. If the site they enter is in the list, it shows it. Otherwise it takes them to a fake proxy.
However, it doesn't seem to be working. The policy settings in IE Maintenance - Connection - Auto Browser Configuration are:
Automatically detect config settings- ENABLED
Automatic Browser Configuration - ENABLED
Interval - EVERY 0 MINUTES
Auto-config URL (.INS file) - http://server:80/nonet.pac
Auto-proxy URL (.JS, .JVS or .PAC file) - http://server:80/nonet.pac
The location of the NONET.PAC file is on the web server, which is running ok - the only site that the pupil can see is the web server itself. Everything else comes up with "this page cannot be displayed".
I don't have folder redirection set in the policy, is there anything I'm missing? There's nothing else configured in the GPO net settings that I think would cause a problem (just the home page and a couple of favourites are altered)

Is the file placed within a share and are permissions configured so every user can access the file? And how are you specifying the location of the file? A mapped network drive or a UNC path?
Folder Redirection isn't necessary or required for what you're trying to achieve.

The file is in the usual IIS folder as detailed in my policy settings in the OP. Ie: http://server/nonet.pac
The user has read access to this area, as they can view other web pages stored there.
