Enforce Proxy GP for 2 seperate Proxy Servers

Our company has 2 locations.  The 2 offices are connected via VPN (ISA2004 to ISA2000).  There is only one domain.  Primary Domain Server is in the main office along with a secondary domain controller.  A secondary controller is also located in the remote office.  How do I configure a GP(s) to force all the client workstations to use the appropriate proxy server  (main users to main proxy and remote users to remote proxy).  Currently, there is a GP under default domain policy/user configuration/internet explorer maintenance/connection/proxy settings.  In that setting I have exceptions defined for the remote IP addresses (10.1.2.*).  But that does not seem to be working properly as the GP seems to be applied to the remote workstations. The GP does work for the main office workstations.

As you have two sites connected via a vpn, under AD sites and subnets, do you have the two sites and two subnets defined?  I would take these GPO settings out of the default domain policy, and add these settings to a new GPO attached to each site.  This would let you specify the correct Proxy server to use, for the correct site (and subnet).

we do not have 2 sites and 2 subnets.  I am researching how to configure 2 sites/2 subnets and I will try your suggestion.
