Server Proxy Settings Are Modified During Setup


This article describes how the server proxy settings are modified during Setup.

More Information

During the installation of Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server, the Setup process changes the proxy settings for the server from "per-user" to "per-computer". Later, if you remove SharePoint Portal Server, you can change the proxy settings back to "per-user" on the server, which can enable each individual user on the server to configure specific proxy settings.

The server administrator can change the proxy settings to "per-user":

  1. Open Group Policy as a stand-alone Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in:
    1. Click Start, click Run, type: MMC, and then click OK.
    2. On the Console menu, click Add/Remove Snap-in.
    3. On the Standalone tab, click Add.
    4. In Available Standalone Snap-ins, click Group Policy, and then click Add. The Select Group Policy Object dialog box is displayed. Retain the default Group Policy object as Local Computer.
    5. Click Finish. The Group Policy object (local computer policy) is displayed on the Standalone tab in the Add/Remove Snap-in dialog box.
    6. Click Close, and then click OK.
  2. Use the Group Policy snap-in to change the per-user proxy settings:
    1. Expand the Local Computer Policy node, expand Computer Configuration, expand Administrative Templates, and then expand Windows Components.
    2. In the Policy window, double-click Internet Explorer.
    3. Right-click Make proxy settings per-computer (rather than per-user), and then click Properties.
    4. On the Policy tab, click Not Configured.
    5. Click OK to save the policy setting. Then, the proxy settings for the account of each individual user on the server must be configured (each individual user on the server can perform this task).
