IE11 Zone Elevation and using a Public IP range for the LAN RRS feed

  • Question

  • Where I work a manager bought a /16 block of Public IP addresses and it's been used for everything in our network.

    In a GPO it's set to prompt for Zone Elevation in the Local Intranet Zone part of settings.
    With IE9 users never get a prompt when going from one intranet URL to the next.
    But with IE11 they suddenly do. No GPO's altered (yet).

    Reading this blog I understand why it happens. And it makes sense when you use private addresses for your LAN.

    Is there any way I can work around this?
