Disable changing proxy settings

Discussion in 'Server Security' started by Bikini Browser, Jun 15, 2010.

  1. Hello Everyone...

    I am a complete novice but I have to learn how do to this so any help would
    be apprecaited if it is a step by step of how to do it... We are using a
    windows 2003 Standard Server with active directory. I don't know anything
    about GPO's or about Active Directory.

    I have helped a friend install a new SmoothWall firewall with a proxy server
    and I need to stop my users from changing proxy settings on the computers in
    our network.

    What is the command to open the group policy editor and how do you stop my
    users from changing proxy settings?

    Please advise....

  2. Don't worry about it

    Make sure that the ONLY way out to the Internet is through the proxy. Then
    if they change or remove their proxy settings then all they do is cut
    themselves off from the internet,...If they want the internet then they have
    the leave the settings alone.

    It is just that simple.
