I have a Windows 2003 R2 server, that I need to be able to have some users access IE's Internet Options, specifically the Connections > Proxy Settings config area. I know that they can access the IE Options applet in Control Panel, but this isn't providing the accessibility that I need.
This Win2k3 R2 machine is a part of a Win2k8 R2 domain, and I've checked the following:
- in the default domain policy under User Configuration > administrative templates > Windows Components > IE > Browser Menus > "Tools Menu: Disable Internet Options .. menu option" this is set to "Not Configured"
- on the Win2k3 R2 machine I browse to the local Computer policy: Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > IE > IE Control Panel : the setting there:
"Disable the Connections Page" is "Not Configured"
- I ran RSOP on the Win2k3 R2 machine, for my logged in account, which has domain admin privs, and the RSOP data came back not showing this setting being blocked anywhere.
Any thoughts why this isn't available and how can I get it turned on?
