Configure proxy server IP address RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We have our offices in many locations and each location has an organizational unit. We enabled group policies to give the proxy server IP address for each OU as these locations have there own proxy servers. The issue is when there is an associate travelling, he is getting the proxy ip of home office address instead of the location he is working which is realistic as his user account is not moved. But is there a way that the proxy server IP address can be tied up with the AD sites and services so that we can completely get rid of group policies or any best advices.

    Thanks

  • You could use GPP ILT, to apply the relevant proxy address, e.g. "if my address is in the range 101.1.1.1 - 101.1.1.254, apply proxy of 101.1.1.253"

  • The AD Sites & Services tool, isn't used for GPO at all.

    But, if you mean, "can I link a GPO to an AD Site?", yes, you can, you can link a GPO at Domain-Level, or Site-Level, or OU-Level.

    If encountering the issue where GPMC only offers IE version up to IE8 for GPP, you will need to choose a GPMC machine that has a newer version of IE installed, e.g. use a Win8 machine, install the RSAT update upon that machine (which gives you both a newer browser version and the updated GPMC and GPP tools).

    Or, you can apply this update, if you prefer to stay with WS2008R2 or Win7 as your GPMC machine:
