Blocking Internet access via 127.0.0.1 Method

I've already created a Group Policy that restricts 'net access from IE by forcing the proxy address to use 127.0.0.1 and it works fine.

"Do not use proxy server for local address" is checked so that clients can access the corporate intranet site.

By the same token, I assumed that accessibility to Outlook Web Access would be functional too.  For example, "http://mail2/" redirects to "https://mail2.domain.com".  This results in "page cannot be displayed".

It looks as if the secure page is not being treated as a "local address", even though Active Directory contains a valid A record for mail2.  I've tried "https://10.0.0.6/exchange/" to no avail.

I've even added the above IP address into the "Exceptions" box without success.

What's the best workaround to allow accessibility to OWA under these conditions?

Thanks in advance.

Elmo_Oxygen,

you would be better off playing with contecnt advisor as everything you are currently trying to hit goes through your 127.0.0.1 address which means it falls over :)

Regards,

James
