Internet Access Group Policy

Posted on 2009-04-23

I noticed at a new customers network that senior staff have access to the Internet, but when junior staff log on, they get the homepage which is set by default via group policy, but when they try to access google etc they cannot get on. Like I said, this doesn't happen for senior staff.

I wondered in group policy where this is configured.

    please check proxy setting. Most probably they have proxy setting on group policy.

    Checked proxy settings in group policy but nothing there setup. Can't see any restrictions on OUs for the junior staff that indicates anything to do with proxy settings !!!
