We have 3 vpns terminating on 3 different cisco ASAs and i want to have each vpn client use a different non-cisco web-proxy server.  I was looking at simply adding a GPO entry that set the proxy and limit the scope of the GPO by the active IP address of the client but AD's GPO doesn't support that setting.  I am open to using wpad with a pac file but would rather not incur the overhead and security issues.  We tried using the cisco vpn client to set the proxy setting but since users are authenticating the vpn connection before logging into their laptop, those client proxy settings get ignored.  What is the best way for pushing out proxy settings?

You can create a GPO reflecting the config- after logon you can issue a gpupdate /force /boot which would cache the new policy changes without the user needing a layer 2 link at boot time for the 'applying security settings..' piece on the following restarts

Yep, i tried that but found I couldn't target just the remote users that way.  I want to get just the users who are coming in on the VPN, not those in the LA branch office.  I do have an OU containing all the regional machines.  I just don't know when they will be working remotely or not.

What your looking for is features found in Network Policy Server found in Routing and Remote Access 2008 that ties into RADIUS authentication but I just became familiar with it a few weeks back and can't be much further help. Have you explored the option of a transparent proxy from each originating subnet?

GDPR? That's a regulation for the European Union. But, if you collect data from customers or employees within the EU, then you need to know about GDPR and make sure your organization is compliant by May 2018. Check out our preparation checklist to make sure you're on track today!
