WPAD configured in trusted domain causing issues in our domain
Posted on 2013-01-22
We have a Windows 2008R2 domain, we do not have WPAD configured in our own domain, We are a healthcare organisation and we have a 2 way trust with another domain of a seperate healthcare org, we have conditonal forwarding configured for their internal domain name.
They have recently configured WPAD on their domain, this has led to people who use our DNS servers that do not have proxy servers configured being directed to our partners proxy server. This does not effect people who are members of our own domain as they have proxy settings configured by GPO, however we have a large number of doctors practices that are just workgroup members who use our DNS settings as the long term goal is to migrate them to our domain, however in the interim the WPAD setting is causing us some pain.
Is there a way we can stop the WPAD from the trusted domain taking effect, we have the globalqueryblocklist setting enabled and WPAD is in there however this doess not seem to stop it
Any help would be very much appreciated.
