Loopback processing?  I am not familiar with this.  Does anyone know why
in the example I gave below the proxy settings are applied twice?  Is
there a cached policy on the local pc or something?

Wally-

Is there any chance that your computers have been set to use Loopback
processing?

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 143.61.151.99 address is the bad proxy but
I can't find that address in the gpo's that are getting applied.
