    But....got to school today -put in proxy - ALL FINE but then I put it on the network and it isn't picking up the proxy settings - forced a gp update, ticked automatic detection, nothing.
    I presume you've joined it to the domain successfully? If yes, within Active Directory you need to move the computer object from 'Computers' to an OU where you've configured policies. I can't tell you where as everyone's Active Directory setup is different.
    Once you've moved it to wherever, run a gpupdate /force from the run menu.

    As a general recommendation I would configure proxy settings on the Default Domain Policy as every machine is required to go through the proxy to access the web. Normally I wouldn't touch the Default Domain Policy, but sometimes there are a few exceptions where it makes sense!

    Yes, and unfortunately this is one case where the settings ARE in the default domain policy and it IS being applied properly
    But still doesn't work

    I always made a seperate policy for those sorts of things and just drop it under the domain policy that way if it knackers up it doesnt effect the rest of it and still applies to the rest of the domain afaik

    Also presuming its link enabled and forced and done a gpupdate on the server and a gpupdate force on the client(s) ?

    I have done gpresult and it says all policies being applied as compared with another machine.
    I have done another gpupdate with no luck
    The policies work on all othe machines so I am presuming that links etc have been set up OK. I have put several machines, both PC and laptops on the domain since I have been here and I have had no other problems which is why I think this is machine based

    You can do this, but in practice it doesn't make any difference. Generally I don't think there's anything else I enable or disable at domain level.

    @Witch - Are other policies actually being applied OK?

    Just means if the policy you create knackers things up it only knackers things up in that one policy ( which seeing as you are only trying to apply proxy settings imo just makes it a bit safer that way you dont naff up the default domain policy - could be wrong.

    OK
    Final effort

    I took the proxy out of the domain policy, and put it back, and now (well, once at least) the Tosh seems to be picking it up. I verified that I could access the internet and got out quickly. I expect I will find out next week if it held the settings - actually, come to think of it, I won't as the teachers almost never log on to the network and it was working fine locally.
    So I'll just lie doggo until the problem raises its ugly head again.
    Thanks again guys (fellas? chaps? - never know quite what to call you collectively)

    Oh For F*** sake...
    Something similar has happened again..HELP!!!!!

    Tosh - about 6 months old.
    Created a new local account for teacher - gave him administrative rights as is done in this school...
    Went to put the proxy in so that he can access the internet but ALL LAN settings are greyed out.
    Logged on to the actual local administrator account..same thing

    Logged on as network admin, proxy is in but again all LAN settings greyed out - which is what you would expect as it is being applied by a GPO
    SO - it seems as if the machine is sort of crossing over its settings from a network log on to a local log on and greying out the same areas - but the proxy isnt there.
    Is this a Tosh thing and what can I do about it?
    I need to get the proxy in so that the teacher can access the internet when logged on locally.
    Thanks

    Does the machine have a local policy that restricts this?

    I can't see that it would be a Toshiba thing.

    But there was a teacher log on before and it worked fine.
    The only difference was that the machine had never been on the network when the original account was created, but it has been since, and now I cant get to the proxy. There has to be some sort of connection, surely?
    Where would I look for something that might be restricting it?

    does this help?

    Make proxy settings per-machine (rather than per user)
    Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Internet Explorer

    Description
    Applies proxy settings to all users of the same computer.

    If you enable this policy, users cannot set user-specific proxy settings. They must use the zones created for all users of the computer.

    If you disable this policy or do not configure it, users of the same computer can establish their own proxy settings.

    This policy is intended to ensure that proxy settings apply uniformly to the same computer and do not vary from user to user.
