I want to apply windows proxy settings on a computer/location/OU basis using group policy (IE version for the moment is 8, but will be upgrading sooner or later). Presently, I have user objects and computer objects separated out in different OU's in my Active directory tree, and these OU's are subdivided further by category (e.g. computers/PhysicalLocation1, computers/PhysicalLocation2, users/BusinessUnit1, users/BusinessUnit2, etc.).
I think that the typical solution for the above problem is to use group policy loopback processing with the GPO security filter. However, the catch is that I want to have it so that ONLY when users access the network from a specific computer/location, regardless of user, everyone goes through the proxy. When the same users access the network from a different location/OU they do not go through the proxy.
If I use the GPO security filter to pin point where the group policy loopback processing is to be applied it seems that I need to specify user objects (i.e. the object associated with the person logging into the PC with the proxy settings) along with computer objects (i.e. the computer where the proxy settings are applied). The problem with this is that when the user uses a different PC in a location where I do NOT want proxy settings to be applied, because the user is in the GPO security filter the proxy settings end up being applied.
Is there any easy way to pinpoint proxy settings per computer?
