    Default gateways and proxy server

    Hello fellow techies!

    I'm new to this forum and to Schools! I started in April and was immediately given the task of removing RM 2.4 and installing a normal W2K3 network. A lot of work for the summer, especially on my own!

    Anyway, two questions, is it possible to set the default gateway by either a GPO or via DHCP? This would save the problems with teachers who use their laptops on networks at home and at school. And also, I thought I spotted a policy that would force proxy server on and a server address somewhere in policies, but now can't find it!

    Any help would be much appreciated! This is probably the first of mny daft questions! It's a different world in schools compared with commercial!

    Re: Default gateways and proxy server

    You set the default gateway in the DHCP scope and the proxy can be set in the GPO.
    User Configuration - Internet Explorer Maintenance - Connection - Proxy Settings.

    Re: Default gateways and proxy server

    To set the Default Gateway via DHCP do the following (assuming you're using a Win2k3 DHCP server):

    Start > Programs > Administrator Tools > DHCP

    Click the + on your scope to expand the tree, right click on Scope Options then hit Configure Options

    Place a tick in the "003 Router" section and enter your gateway's IP address into the field and hit add.


    To set a proxy server in your GPO do the following:

    Open the Group Policy Object Editor (Probably best to edit your Default Domain Policy)

    Navigate to the following:

    User Configuration > Windows Settings > Internet Explorer Maintenance > Connection > Proxy Settings

    Add your proxy info there and all should be good!

    I've never had the fortune to admin anything RM, but from what I've seen and heard I don't want it anywhere near me!

    It is recommended that you leave your default policy intact and create another policy at the same level to make any changes incase you screw something up on the default domain policy.
