Disabling I.E. Proxy Options in Citrix 6.5

Hi guys, I´m struggling with disabling the "Automatically detect settings" from IE setting but I just can´t manage to do it through local GPO. The settings I have enabled are:

Enabled: "Disable changing Automatic Configuration Settings"
This setting specifies to automatically detect the proxy server settings used to connect to the Internet and customize Internet Explorer. This setting specifies that Internet explorer use the configuration settings provided in a file by the system administrator.

If you enable this policy setting, the user will not be able to do automatic configuration. You can import your current connection settings from your machine using Internet Explorer Maintenance under Admin Templates using group policy editor.

If you disable or do no configure this policy setting, the user will have the freedom to automatically configure these settings.

Enabled: "Disable caching of Auto-Proxy scripts"
Prevents automatic proxy scripts, which interact with a server to automatically configure users' proxy settings, from being stored in the users' cache.

If you enable this policy, automatic proxy scripts will not be stored temporarily on the users' computer.

If you disable this policy or do not configure it, automatic proxy scripts can be stored in the users' cache.

I believe that the above stops the users changing the setting but doesn't set it.

A quick look at some of my older notes shows I used a Group Policy Preference to set the following registry key:

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings

AutoDetect = 0 (DWord)


That was part of the solutuion.  Thanks
