Exception list problem in internet explorer in the Local Network




We use the ISA proxy server to go to internet in the local network.
And we use group policy to control the IE settings.
I distribute the some settings for IE by GPO.
For example, I configure IE to use proxy server and I put a check on
"bypass proxy server for local addresses". And I add a few internal web
with their FQDNs into the exception list in order to bypass the proxy for
local web sites. I must use the exception list, because the option "bypass
proxy server for local addresses" doesn't work when I use the FQDN of the
local web sites.

At the same time, all computers in the local network contain ISA firewall
And the problem is beginning just here.
Exception list is cleared by the firewall client. So the internal request
goes to the
proxy also. If I don't use firewall client , the exception list stays there
as in the GPO.

Here, I have to use the firewall client and the FQDNs of the internal web
How can I deal with this issue?
I would be grateful if somebody help me.
Thanks in advance.

Intranet site is identified as an Internet site when you use an FQDN or an
IP address

Internet Explorer Uses Proxy Server for Local IP Address Even if the "Bypass
Proxy Server for Local Addresses" Option Is Turned On

Make sure you have the latest version of ISA:
