3G + proxy pac + gpo

I've a created a gpo to specify the proxy settings and exceptions list which works great.
Problem comes in, when laptop users try to use 3G connections.
The proxy pac settings can't be applied for their 3G connections (VPN).
can anyone help me please?

Your default route on your laptops would need to route all traffic via the vpn to force the use of your proxy.

Otherwise they could specify the URL of your proxy.pac file for all of their browsers.

Basically you can't.  If connected via 3g/vpn then the default configuraiton for the laptopp will override any policy settings you may have on your network.

What you would need to do is route all vpn traffic through your proxy, or at least all network traffic by using a port forwarding router to handle this work.
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.

Without changing the laptop though, only your vpn traffic will go via your vpn and the other stuff will go via the 3g standard network connection.

So, the only way you can really achieve what you want is to override the laptop settings at the laptop, not via a policy.

Is your problem that the proxy.pac file isn't applied at all when on 3G? I am just getting started with proxy.pac files for laptops and have found that if the URL to the file is also valid from the 3G connection, then the settings from the proxy.pac file are used. In other words, I put the proxy.pac file on a public web server, and it seems to work.
