Group policy - Proxy configuration not working with IE7

By Grazal ·
Hello I am looking for suggestions on a current issue I have with I.E.7

I have a gpo publishing all my default page / security / proxy settings / favourites. Everything works fine with IE6 but IE7 users do not receive the proxy settings. I have tested my GPO and all is modelling ok but the settings do not even publish to the registry. If you uninstall IE7, rolling back to IE6 and reboot IE6 picks up the proxy settings and entries appear in the registry.

Any advice or links would be appreciated.

The above does not work. I have tried this plus everything to resolve this problem and I cannot get IE7 to inherit our GPO settings. Anyone any further advice?

Group policy - Proxy configuration not working with IE7

by johan.burger In reply to Group policy - Proxy conf ...

I had a very similar problem. All modelling showed that the policy was fine and that it applied correctly but the IE7 proxy settings did not update. After a long 3 day fault finding mission I played with the exclusion list and found that an illegal character caused the problem. In my case I used http://xxx.domain.net/; or http://xxx.domain.net/*;
IE7 will only accept http://xxx.domain.net without the / or the /* Hope this can help you as I coudn't find any other help on the internet.

Bad exception parsing is the culprit

by techrepublic In reply to Group policy - Proxy conf ...

Your post led to the solution. We had an entry with a leading dot which prevented IE from writing to the registry. We removed the offending character, and all was good.

This help me on the way to our solution. It wasn't some rogue addresses the proxy exlusion list, rather some bad address configured in the internet explorer security zones gpo which had imported. Removing these allowed the proxy setting to be applied.
