Cannot get any local IPs to show up in Trusted Sites.

Last Modified: 2013-12-08
Hello all.

Trying to get a local IP address to show up in the Trusted Sites zone in IE7.  Tried the following MS reccomendation:   http://support.microsoft.com/kb/174360 which says to make registry changes. I did, and they show up under the Trusted Sites tab (Under 'Tools', 'Internet Options', 'Security', 'Trusted Sites', 'Sites'.  The IP shows up there as 192.161.22.* and the domain as *.domname.com

However, when I try to navigate to the IP, or to the hostname (as created in DNS = bladeserver.domname.com) it STILL shows 'Internet' at the bottom of the IE status bar.  

I have configured group policy to lock it down a lot, but don't know where the setting is that should affect it.
Any ideas greatly appreciated.
