How do I use GPO to assign Proxy Server settings to a group of computers, not a group of users
Posted on 2007-11-23
On our network some of our computers use a private network and require going through a Proxy Server to reach the Internet. GPOs can be designed to assign Proxy Server settings on a user basis (User Config|Windows Settings|Internet Explorer Maintenance|Connection), but there is no similar setting under Computer Configuration. I want proxy settings to be set based on the computer, not the user.
There was an accepted solution which referred to loopback processing, but I don't see how this applies, if there is no relevent setting available in Computer Configuration.
Is there a way of creating an Administrative template under Computer Configuration that will set Proxy Server Settings?
