Looking to manage proxy settings for IE 10 and 11 on Windows 7 pcs. I will be managing the group policies form Windows 7 and 2008 R2.
What is the best way to do it? I see mention of a few ways of doing it, but some methods only apply to server 2012? Is there an admx template to import?
Any useful guide to use (preferably not MS or technet)?

Thanks, and what's the best way to deploy the proxy settings using these new policies on a 2008R2 server? It seems the simplest way requires Server 2012?
I see a method that deploys a registry key for proxy settings here, is that the best route:

I ended up doing this using registry key in Group Pol Preferences. It seems the cleanest method if you have now WINdos8 or Server12.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings
Edit this on your own pc: set ProxyOverride key to include *.domain.com;<local>
Go to GPMC and edit the new GPO
User Configuration>Preferences>Windows settings>registry>Wizard  
(It can also be create as computer-level GPO and applied to a specific computers OU)
Select the proxyOverride key and import it

Templates were no use, registry key was needed
