Hi,

I have IE7 installed on XP Prof. SP3 system. When we configure Proxy IP assignment to user desktops, GP policy wont get applied to IE7 browsers.
GPRESULT shows required rsop results but IE7 is not picking them and stops net surfing.
I have done all GP settings that i could get on net while searching for this problem, but no luck.
I tried uninstalling IE7 and it worked with IE6. For some reason we need to be on IE7. Can some one guide us to resolve this issue?

it may be something like google toolbat, or the antivirus is "protecting" you from IE changes.

Make sure you have appropriate .ADM Administrative Template files installed on the computer you use to create / edit your GPOs.

the proxy settings in IE7 are done by machine and NOt by user thereforew although teh policies are applied IE7 doesnt use them

to get round this either disable teh key as in teh KB above OR create an Ou for all your computer accoutns and place them in it then apply the proxy gpos to that OU

well the proxy is not being applied as its taking the machines settings i am 100% confident of that did you try creating the computer ou within ad and adding the gpo to that group?

I have created test ou and doing all these R&D under that only as i can not touch production OU's and can not change policy set on that. So it is fresh OU as per you  and in which test machin and test users are pushed.

u mean ou should have machin and policy define on ou should have gp with define proxy ip under user configuration and Make proxy settings per-machine (rather than per-user) under computer config.

Problem is resolve. It was exclusion that was having ipaddress:port number. Group policy will not be applied if any thing other than ; is entered in proxy ip assignments.
