Making a Group Policy to enable Proxy settings when user logs on to domain

Posted on 2004-10-26

Here is what I'm trying to do.  We are trying to get Internet Filtering enabled.  We are looking to purchase this program that is set up as a proxy.  So we need to set up Internet Explorer to go through a proxy.  I don't really want to go to every branch office to manually set up internet explorer going through a proxy so I figured there has to be a Group Policy or even a login script that would be able to do what I want to do.  I just want the login script or group policy(don't know what one would be better) to automatically config Internet Explorer to route through a proxy also for security reason I want to find out if I could do a reg edit over the domain so they won't be able to get into the internet tools to go around the proxy.  I'm running a Windows 2003 domain with about 95 client computers ranging from win98 up to winXP.  If you need anymore info then let me know
