I created a GPO for a group of users that sets a web proxy server for them to connect to, and a list of exceptions to bypass use of the proxy.
When I log on as a test user, I am indeed connected to the web proxy, but the sites I specified in GPO as exceptions are not in the list of exceptions. The list of exceptions is blank. Why won't the exceptions work?
Here is my GPO:
User Configuration --> Policies --> Windows Settings --> Internet Explorer Maintenance --> Connection --> Proxy settings: Checked "Enabled proxy settings", typed in the address of proxy and the port, checked the "Use the same proxy server for all addresses" box, added the exception sites in the Exception textfield, and checked "Do not use proxy server for local (intranet) addresses" box.
What am I doing wrong?
P.S. We are using Internet Explorer 8, and I can tell by looking at proxy server logs that the exceptions are not working.
