Internet Explorer Proxy Exception - Syntax format for covering subdomains? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi.

    Can anyone tell me the right format for a Proxy Exception to cover a domain with subdomains?There are several examples covering the use of wildcards - like this MS article:

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd361953.aspx

    The "Enter a wildcard at the beginning of an Internet address..." example does not cover the useage of subdomains :-(

    a.b.c.microsoft.com

    Do I use\ set the proxy exception to "*.*.*.microsoft.com" or is "*.microsoft.com" enough to cover all the a.b.c subdomains?

  • Hi,

    As the document states,  using a wildcard at the beginning of an Internet address, IP address, or domain name to bypass servers with a common ending. For example, use "*.example.com" to bypass any entries ending in ".example.com" (such as "some.example.com" and "www.example.com"). 

    So I think *.microsoft.com is enough to cover all the subdomains.

    Best regards

  • Thanks for your input Michael but as you can understand I am looking for a confirmation on this. Hopefully followed by an official Microsoft answer or article.

  • Thanks again Michael but this article is also not conclusive as it holds the same info...that is , no informaion on sub-domains.

  • The proxy bypass list seems to be made to work in this way.

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn454900.aspx

    Check the above article, "Protocol values are not case sensitive and you can use a wildcard character ( * ) in place of zero or more characters."

    You may try to add *.*.*.microsoft.com and see if this would work as expected. Which I think it the same result as *.microsoft.com.

    There seems no offical article talking about bypass list with the usage of wildcard character. Other than the above two.

    Surely *.*.*.microsoft.com would only bypass sites with 3 levels in it? Unlikey *.microsoft.com which would bypass anything but http://microsoft.com
