The 255 max characters is because the GPO is used to set the proxy
settings in IE on the local machines. That local machine setting is held
in a reg key, hence the 255 character limit. To have greater control you
need something like ISA as a proxy server and do your bypasses there.

Hi All,


It looks like there is a maximum length of 255 characters for Proxy
Exceptions if you enter these into the Policy on Windows 2003.  Does
anybody know how to change this in 2003?  If it was an ADM file I know
you can use a MAXLEN statement but this doesn't fall under the
administrative templates.  I don't know what would happen if I set this
in an administrative template if it would conflict with the one built
into Windows 2003.
