If you work in a Microsoft Active Directory environment you can push out a customized deployment of Smart Connect with Microsoft Group Policy Objects (GPOs). If you roll out Smart Connect with a GPO to a group of users, you can also set up their web browsers for Web Security.
To save processing time the best practice is to have as few GPOs as possible. You should create your GPO at the highest level possible in your Active Directory (AD) infrastructure, such as for a site or for a domain. The procedure in this guide is for a domain-level group policy. Adapt the instructions in the following procedures to fit in with your own AD setup.
If you require some of the computers covered by the group policy to be unmonitored you can bypass the proxy server. Examples might be some members of the marketing department who require access to banned websites for research. for these computers you set up exceptions in the Group Policy Object. You may also require requests from a URL to bypass the proxy server, for example Microsoft updates. For these URLs you set up a bypass list in agentconfigure.xml.
When you have set up agentconfigure.xml you then perform an .msi transform to create the deployment .mst for your environment. You push out the deployment .mst to your users with a group policy.
