Policy implementation on Win2000
Posted on 2001-06-29
I have 2 main servers that are Win2000 with a mixed bag of clients (Win2000 and NT4). I need to be able to change everyone's proxy setting on Internet Explorer, so I decided to implement a policy to do this. The Win2000 server group policy is great as it has a setting to do this and I implemented it and it works fine for Win2000 CLIENTS. However, according to Microsoft, I have to use the old Poledit.exe and put it in the NETLOGON folder for the NT4 clients. I manually created a policy for the proxy setting and put it in the NETLOGON folder, but the NT4 computers still seem to be ignoring it. Help? I thought maybe I wrote the policy wrong, but I tried another default policy and they are not receiving that either. I even changed the name of the policy to NTconfig.pol which seems to be the rule. Any help is appreciated.
