Wally- Is there any chance that your computers have been set to use Loopback processing? Darren From: gptalk-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:gptalk-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Wally Kroeker Sent: Wednesday, March 19, 2008 9:32 AM To: gptalk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [gptalk] Proxy settings reverting to old proxy server I have been using Group Policy to apply IE proxy settings on a 2003 Active directory domain. I had not changed anything in quite awhile but I decided to force everyone to have a locking screensaver which I did with group policy. When I did this all of a sudden my users proxy settings changed to the ip of an old proxy server that does not exist. IF I get a user to reboot the proxy settings go back to normal so it looks like Group policy is working properly. But after an undetermined amount of time the proxy settings go back to the old setting which is wrong. I have looked at the local GPO but it does not have the setting in it. I can not find where the old Proxy setting is coming from. Here is a copy from part of gpresult /v it looks like the proxy server is getting applied twice. the 188.8.131.52 address is the bad proxy but I can't find that address in the gpo's that are getting applied. nternet Explorer Browser User Interface ---------------------------------------- GPO: emp Travel Large Animated Bitmap Name: N/A Large Custom Logo Bitmap Name: N/A Title BarText: UserAgent Text: N/A Delete existing toolbar buttons: No Internet Explorer Connection ---------------------------- HTTP Proxy Server: 184.108.40.206:8080 Secure Proxy Server: 220.127.116.11:8080 FTP Proxy Server: 18.104.22.168:8080 Gopher Proxy Server: 22.214.171.124:8080 Socks Proxy Server: 126.96.36.199:8080 Auto Config Enable: No Enable Proxy: Yes Use same Proxy: Yes HTTP Proxy Server: 188.8.131.52:8080 Secure Proxy Server: 184.108.40.206:80 FTP Proxy Server: 220.127.116.11:80 Gopher Proxy Server: 18.104.22.168:80 Socks Proxy Server: 22.214.171.124:80 Auto Config Enable: No Enable Proxy: Yes Use same Proxy: Yes Wally Kroeker Network Administrator CAA Manitoba (204)262-6012 _____ This message and any attachments are solely for the intended recipient and may contain confidential or privileged information.
