Add in grkfs1 to the Proxy Override list. It won't resolve first then figure out if it's to use the proxy. You'd have to use a Proxy Configuration Script for that kind of behaviour.



so what should i actually do and how i can configure it again

How are you setting this at the moment?


If you're just configuring it locally in Internet Options / Connections / LAN Settings you can add in the additional value for the bypass there.

Or are you pushing it out with Group Policy?

The key is that IE won't match to the IP based entries. It's a very simple matching mechanism. It won't see that grkfs1 is in the bypass list because it doesn't translate the name back to the IP before checking.

I started with Experts Exchange in 2004 and it's been a mainstay of my professional computing life since. It helped me launch a career as a programmer / Oracle data analyst

it does not accept grkfs1\gwiki if i put this in the proxyoverride.

Any further ideas..
