Internet Proxy setting in Group Policy
Posted on 2007-03-17
Group Policy question for you....
I am restricting access to the Proxy Server settings in the Lan Settings area of the Internet Options>Connections tab for users(W2k and XP) of my domain(Windows 2003 Native). This is to prevent users from circumventing the proxy and getting out to the Internet without going through the proxy and web filtering software. This GP has one unfortunate side effect.. It also means users on laptops that connect to the domain, and then go mobile, are caching this policy and are having problems connecting to the Internet while traveling. I have a VBS script that can be run by the users to disable the proxy settings if necessary, but I was wondering if there was a group policy setting that could disable the proxy setting upon becoming untethered from our network and re-enable the proxy setting when they connect back on again.
Thanks for the help!
