    Setting Proxy Server policy Windows 2000

    I expect this is something stupid but I have just resurrected an old Windows 2000 machine for the staffroom. I've tried using local and group policies to set the proxy details but it isn't working. Is this a Windows 2000 issue?

    You could always set it manually within Internet Explorer - Tools > Internet Options > Connections > LAN Settings

    Alternatively, the Group Policy for this is exactly the same as for XP/2003. Just join the machine to the domain, and the move the computer object (within Active Directory) where it needs to go.

    It's a shared computer in the staff area so I don't want to do it for each potential user. If I set a local policy using GPEDIT it works for users who logon locally but when logging onto the domain it doesn't pick up any group policies. I'm going to upgrade it to XP anyway, so that should fix it. I'd just like to understand what's going on. The server is 2003.

    Sounds like a dodgy install of windows. Windows 2000 shouldn't have any problems on a 2003 domain.

    Another option could be a login script to set the proxy.

    Thanks, I've just put XP on and it's fine so dodgy 2000 sounds about right.

    Your DC isn't set to mixed mode? So it thinks all your pc's are on XP and anything below won't work?
