Endpoint Protection Web Traffic Redirection fails to set proxy settings
Last Updated May 17, 2019
The Symantec Endpoint Protection's (SEP) client Web Traffic Redirection (WTR) feature is enabled, but the system proxy settings do not point to http://localhost:2968/proxy.pac. The AutoConfigURL value under HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings is not updated.
The WTR engine sets proxy settings using the local Group Policy on the computer. If the computer has a domain Group Policy Object (GPO) applied that specifies proxy settings, the domain GPO will override the local GPO set by the WTR engine.
Ensure any domain GPO applied to the computer sets the value of Computer Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Internet Explorer > Make proxy settings per-machine (rather than per-user) is Not Configured.
