How to set IE proxy server address on Citrix via group policy

We have 2 Citrix servers.  I'd like to set things up with Group Policy so that anyone logging into a terminal server session and opens IE has the proxy server set and cannot change it.  I do not want these same users to then come into the office and have their local machines using the proxy, so a user GPO isn't the answer.  

Is there a way via GPO to set the computer policy to have IE populated with the proxy settings?  Or is it just as easy to set these settings locally on the 2 servers?

yes you can create a GPO which only affects the citrix servers.

Basically create a new OU just for those servers, then link a new GPO to it that has "Authenticated Users" defined. In the GPO set the IE settings for the proxy.

This will apply to only the computers in that OU.

Thanks guys.  

Will both of these solutions work?  Or is one better than the other for some reason?

The First comment wont work because Proxy settings are set at the "User" configuration and wont apply to "Computers" until you use "Loopback"

Using the "Loopback" policy will  force it apply to every user that logs into those machines. This way you dont need to worry about which groups users belong to.
