per computer proxy settings how?

using group policy editor on win2k server we wish to have proxy settings applied on a per computer basis. have found an item in the computer policy for changing proxy settings to per machine instead of per user but it isnt at all clear where, if we turned it on, the proxy settings would come from.

we wondered if it was from the local machine but we dont want to have to go round lots of computers and change the local settings.

can anyone advise?

thanks.

What about running a script to change Proxy setting.

1. Create a GPO
2. Create a group called "ProxyComp"
3. Add all computer accounts to this Group.
4. Create the bacth file > put the appropriate commands in this batch file > Process this bacth file through Group Policy.
5. Filter this Group Policy scope using the Security Tab and adding ProxyComp group to permission list.
6. Restart all client machines....batch file will run and policy will apply to all computers only and not users.

Does it make sense?
Is that you want?

Let me know.

figured out that you can do it with a feature called "loopback processing" which allows you to set user policies on OUs of computers. those policies are merged with the gpo of the user but with the computer policy taking precedence in the event of conflicting settings.
