I am wanting to set some policies on a windows 2000
application terminal server to acomplish the following;

1.) forceing the users proxy settings to a server (but
specificly not letting the users change it back)

2.) Letting users change reuse their old passwords

3.) Limit the size of any user's temporary internet files
without having to manual set them.

thank you

1. There is a group policy setting to set proxy settings under "User
Configuration\Windows Settings\Internet explorer
maintenance\connection\Proxy setting"

2. If the users are logging on using a Domain account then the domain
password settings will apply. You will need to change the "enforce password
history" setting in the default domain policy so that passwords are not
remembered.

Here is the information on the setting and its location.

Enforce password history
Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Account
Policies\Password Policy

Description
Determines the number of unique new passwords that have to be associated
with a user account before an old password can be reused. The value must be
between 0 and 24 passwords.

By default, this setting is defined in the Default Domain Group Policy
object (GPO) and in the local security policy of workstations and servers
with a value of 1.

The intent of this policy is to enable administrators to enhance security by
ensuring that old passwords are not continually reused.

Note

For history to be effective, do not allow passwords to be changed
immediately when configuring the Minimum password age.
