I have two issues here

First, I want to force all browsers, whether IE, Foxfire, etc... to go
through our proxy server.  Most of our 3000 XP pro workstations have IE on
them, but I have maybe 100 other odd browers.  Can I use GPO to cover all
browsers?

Second of all I think if I set GPO on IE (user and computer settings) to
force them through the proxy, I noticed that if a user logs on with local
credentials he/she can circumvent the proxy.  Is this true or did I
misconfigure or overlook something here.
