Choose how to specify proxy server settings

Allows you to specify the proxy server used by Google Chrome and prevents users from changing proxy settings. ARC-apps will be able to use this proxy server too.

If you choose to never use a proxy server and always connect directly, all other options are ignored.

If you choose to use system proxy settings, all other options are ignored.

If you choose to auto detect the proxy server, all other options are ignored.

If you choose fixed server proxy mode, you can specify further options in 'Address or URL of proxy server' and 'Comma-separated list of proxy bypass rules'. Only the HTTP proxy server with the highest priority is available for ARC-apps.

If you choose to use a .pac proxy script, you must specify the URL to the script in 'URL to a proxy .pac file'.

For detailed examples, visit:
https://www.chromium.org/developers/design-documents/network-settings#TOC-Command-line-options-for-proxy-sett.

If you enable this setting, Google Chrome and ARC-apps ignore all proxy-related options specified from the command line.

Leaving this policy not set will allow the users to choose the proxy settings on their own.

Supported on: Microsoft Windows XP SP2 or later
