Will Steady State work alongside a proxy server RRS feed

  • Question

  • HI All

    I have a proxy server set-up and currently used local GPO to set the proxy settings and the restrict the users from changing the settings.. I would now like to install steady state to lock down the pcs even more. however, it seems on the users i apply the steady state settings to the proxy doesn't get used.

    Surely there is a way to apply proxy settings and use steady state!!!

    Thanks

    ok i think i have figured a way around this...

     

    as administrator set you gpo for applying a proxy and then using steadystate, under the user settings, feature restrictions, internet explorer .... untick the option that says "prevent changes to internet explorer registry settings". 

    hope it is of use to someone else.

    if anyone knows a better way, please let us know.

    Thanks

  • Hi laythinqy, it seems not a better way of Windows Steadystate to work alongside a proxy server. Anyway, thank you for your method for this thread to us.

  • Hi laythingy, rather than going for complex GPO settings, why you are not trying the Deep Freeze Server software. Its a server restore software with which you can easily freeze the configuration. And in any case of crash, a simple restart will restore your original configuration. We are using this software from last 3 years.
