Hi
In the browser settings for any modern browser, (e.g. Edge or Chrome), we have the options to select "Don't use the proxy server for the intranet address" & "Use the proxy server except for addresses that start with the following
entries.

I could only set this option if I select use manual proxy or else it is greyed out.
If I select the manual proxy option with a random proxy only then I am provided with an option to configure the options below 2 options
"Use the proxy server except for addresses that start with the following" &
"Don't use the proxy server for the intranet address".

My question is are the above 2 options effective only if I select the option of manual proxy or if I do not select the manual proxy would the above options be still effective as it shows these options are saved.

What I have done is I have configured the above 2 options and after saving I have deselected the manual proxy option.

Just wanted to know will the above 2 options are still active or not.

Second Question
when I use the below option
"Use the proxy server except for addresses that start with the following entries" (e.g. www.google.com) and the only option to reach internet is via this proxy , will it still take me to google.com or will it not route to google.com and say this page cant be reached.

Third Question
when I use the below option
"Don't use the proxy server for the intranet address" and assuming (xyz.xom) is an Intranet site but is also hosted on the Internet. In a situation if the Intranet site is down or unreachable for some reason would the browser route the request to the external site.
How does this concept work, its a DNS concept or a browser proxy concept?

Thanks
Simon

    Hello,

    A proxy bypass entry may begin by using an http://, https://, ftp://, or gopher:// protocol type.

    If a protocol type is used, the exception entry applies only to requests for that protocol. If no protocol is specified, any request that uses the address will be bypassed.

    Bypass proxy server for local (intranet) addresses -> To bypass the proxy, select the Bypass proxy server for local (intranet) addresses check box in the Local Area Network (LAN) Settings dialog box. This method bypasses the proxy for all addresses that don't contain a period (for example, http://compserv). These addresses will also be resolved directly.

    When you connect to a Web server using the Internet Protocol (IP) address or Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) on the local network, Microsoft Internet Explorer or Windows Internet Explorer connects through an assigned proxy server even if the Bypass proxy server for local addresses option is turned on.
