Group Policy and local exceptions

Hi

I've recently added proxy details through group policy. This has overwritten any users local proxy exceptions. Is there a way to get GPO to just append to these? Even if there's a 3rd party plug-in to allow this...

If you set proxy settings by Group Policy, you should also configure proxy exceptions with GPO.
Else, you should use Logon Scripts in order to only set the proxy with these lines:


REG ADD HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings" /v ProxyServer /d server:port /t REG_SZ /f
REG ADD HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings" /v ProxyEnable /d 0x00000001 /t REG_DWORD /f

You can use startup scripts included in GPO too. So you continue to use GPO, but another way to set proxy settings.
I've done a mistake, add " before HKCU for each line.
