    Proxy setting reg keys

    I've given up trying to resolve why GPOs arent applying the proxy settings and ticking the boxes to enable the proxy, so for now, I want to make a reg file that can be run silently as a user logs in and will make the necessary changes.
    I can't remeber where the area is in the registry for adding a proxy server and enabling it.
    Anyone able to help please?

    TIA

    Here you go.

    Code:
    "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ProxyServer", "%PROXYGOESHERE%:%PORTGOESHERE%"
    "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ProxyEnable", 1, "REG_DWORD"
    "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ProxyOverride", "<local>"	
    "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\Start Page", "http://www.google.com"

    Are you applying the proxy GPO to the users OU. I made the mistake of applying a policy to the computers the other day and took me a while to figure out why it wasnt applying

    Are you using Application Data Redirection? If so that would be why your IE Settings are not applying! I experienced this when we setup our new network a year or so ago. It is a known problem and is mentioned on the Microsoft KB.

    By setting them back to the Local Profile that fixed our IE Maintenance Settings which were not applying.

    Hope this helps.

    its a network i inherited with no handover or anything, so i dont want to go making too many changes. the network will be wiped fresh next month so this is just an interim fix rather than a sweeping change so i dont want to go messing with peoples profiles.

    and yep its been applied to the user settings and in an OU only populated by users.
    if this works it'll do for now!
