IE won't accept proxy server config
Posted on 2008-10-07
we've recently installed a proxy server for our workstations to connect through. i've configured this correctly, and am able to connect with multiple workstations. I'm able to go into each workstations IE settings, set the proxy settings, and save with no issues. One pc in particular (which happens to be my pc) is giving me trouble. i need to change the proxy server address to 10.10.10.10/ss
however, it keeps erasing the "/ss". when i type 10.10.10.10/ss, then click ok, then go back in, it reverts to whtever the last value was (not always the same value.. i can change it to 10.10.10.100, save, and that will be what it reverts to next time). i'm able to make this change with no problem on all other workstations, which are same OS (xp), same version of IE.. also, i WAS able to make this change on my pc the other day, but now am not able to. here's where it gets even stranger:
i've double checked all group policies that might affect this, but again - all other pcs WITHOUT admin access are able to do this - yet my pc/user, with full admin access, cannot.
