Windows XP / IE Domain Policy Issue

I have an issue with a remote site running Windows XP Professional on the workstations.

I have set particular domain policies in Active Directory (Windows Server 2003) for the users that are at the remote site so that their Internet Explorer settings use a particular proxy server, port and home page. For some reason, the settings are not being forced on these workstations and I cannot figure out why - since I have another remote site with an identical setup and exactly the same policy enforced on the OU in AD.

Any help with resolving this issue, or even a recommended work-around would be greatly appreciated.

Check :
1) Local Administrator(s) password ( must not be blanck, default it is) and workstations registration in AD
2) WinXP firewall (local)
3) Local TCP/IP settings
4) Network transparency ( ports/protocols on routers/switches/firewalls) ; here must have access on 445 TCP, 53 TCP/UDP and some others... depend on the structure.

Let me know (more) .

Are these workstations under the same OU or a different OU. If on a different OU please check the GPO properties and make sure the "Block policy inheritence" is unchecked.
