Proxy Settings GPO and XP SP2



Under my OU, I have a GPO for automatically setting the proxy server on
client machines under User Configuration>Windows Settings> Internet Explorer
Maintenance > Connection > Proxy Settings. Prior to upgrading a test WinXP
system to SP2, this policy worked fine. Under SP2, however, the client
system will not download this policy. I have tried more than one SP2 system
with the same result.

I changed the GPO from a WinXP SP2 machine (mine, logged in as
administrator) in two different OUs on a Win2000 server, and all are
experiencing the same behavior. Am I changing this in the incorrect place?

Thanks for any help.



My SP2 machines work fine. However, prior to deploying SP2, did you download
the SP2 ADM's from MS (or from the C:\windows\inf folder on an SP2 machine)
and upgrade your server ADM's?

Did you set to disable the Firewall for the domain? It is automatically on
for Windows XP SP2 unless you disable manually or with GP.
