how to disable proxy settings change

Wanted to know the right way to do this. I saw somewhere that you go to User Config>Policies>Windows Settings>Internet Explorer Maintenance>Connection and then you can uncheck the 'enable proxy settings' box but am not sure that this is the right way. Can someone let me know?

If you are asking if this is how you would do it via group policy, then YES, that would be the setting you clear in the policy you are applying to that user.

Oh ok. So if i uncheck it then it will not only push out the proxy settings but also deny end users from editing the proxy entry or disabling it then right?

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

From what I believe, yes.  It's been quite some time since I played with group policy, but yes to the best of my recollection that's true.

When I uncheck it, the settings are simply disabled and are still able to be changed. I need it set where should a user try to disable the proxy, everything will be grayed out so they can't.

Ended up being that i was using the wrong GPO setting to change. This was an automatic configuration of a proxy url and had to use the respective GPO setting to disable end user intervention. Thnx.
