We have a Win2K3 AD environment. We are using Group Policies to push out the proxy settings to all PCs and laptops.
When a user takes a laptop home we have placed a .reg file on their desktop which they click. This updates the Proxy reg setting to disable the proxy while surfing from home.
When they return, the GPO is not being applied to reset their laptops back to use the proxy for internal surfing.
We figured out when the .reg file is applied at home it by passes the GPO settings and when they return to work the Domain Controller thinks the GP setting on the laptop has not changed and therefore does not re-apply the GP.
If we perform a gpupdate /force then the proxy is reset.
Is there a better way to do what we want?
Is there something we can include in the .reg file to make it look like the GP has changed and will get reapplied automatically upon login at work?
