Hi,

Is he getting the proxy if he login to another machine? if so, it could be the locally cached profiles on that machine. Clear the local cached profiles and check the issue.

You didn't mention the client OS. I assume that it's Windows 7. Go to command prompt and perform the following;

Netsh winhttp show proxy

If it showing correct proxy? if not, set the correct proxy in IE manually and perform the following command

netsh winhttp import proxy source=IE

If the issue still persists, you need to run rsop and see which settings the user is getting and troubleshoot from there.

Hi,

To delete profile>>Click Start, Control Panel>>Switch to the Classic view of the Control Panel and double-click on the System icon. This opens up the System Properties window>>In the System Properties window, select the Advanced tab>>On the Advanced tab, in the User Profiles section, click the Settings button>>Click on the problem profile to select it, and click the Delete button>>Click Yes to confirm>>Close all recently opened windows.

Regarding rsop running for a user. This can be done in Active directory itself. Start>>run>>dsa.msc>>Right click the user>>All Tasks>>Resultant Set Of Policy (Logging)>>Follow the wizard to get the rsop logging mode. PS - you should select another computer and the affected user must be logged onto that machine while running the rsop from AD.

Hope this helps
