Hello,

We are attempting to write a GPO that will hard code the proxy server for our users.  We are attempting to accomplish at the COMPUTER/WORKSTATION level, and NOT at the user level.  The GPO must be at the root of our domain based on our infrastructure, so it cannot be applied to a specific OU.  We are looking to accomplish this via the ACL on the GPO object itself.  Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi,

first, you can totally define the USER policy at the top of the domain ; and then the proxy will be configured for every users (or for a specific group of users).

Otherwise try to define a GPO with the proxy settings on the User Configuration side and apply the "loopback processing" setting on this GPO too : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/231287/en-us
