Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a Windows 2008 R2 Server which I moved to a new location last weekend. After configuring the DNS server (there is an Active directory installed as well) I get this dialog "Windows Security" every now and then, especially when trying to interface towards the Interwebs...

It has a message.

Connecting to wpad.domain.com

Now, any ideas what this is and how I can get rid of it?

wpad.yourdomain.com is the internet explorer proxy autodetect. You should be able to make it go away by turning proxy autodetection off in group policy.

Thanks, a more specific place where to look? The Group Policy Management tool is a bitch when it comes to the ui :/ –  Eric Herlitz Aug 29 '11 at 21:21
