How to Edit Local Intranet Sites in Group Policy


Recent versions of the Microsoft Windows operating system allow different levels of access to external servers, depending on the "zone" where each server is. Servers in the "Local Intranet" are for example, given more privileges than servers in the open Internet -- because the Intranet is maintained by the same organization, so there is a lower probability that a server will host malicious code. Add and delete specific sites to the "Local Intranet" zone using Windows Group Policy.

  • Log in to the server computer as Administrator.

  • Click "Start," then type "Run" into the search box. Click on "Run," then type "gpedit.msc" and press "Enter." The Group Policy editor will come up.

  • Enable Group Policy's capability of assigning individual sites to zones by clicking "Computer Configuration" on the bar on the left side. Navigate to "Administrative Templates," then "Windows Components," "Internet Explorer," the "Internet Control Panel," choose "Security Page." Select "Site to Zone Assignment List."

  • Add a new site to the "Local Intranet" zone by clicking on "Show," then typing the Web address of the site you want to add. Type "2" in the "Value" field to indicate that the site belongs in the Intranet.

  • Delete a site from the "Local Intranet" zone by clicking on "Show," then right-clicking on the site and selecting "Remove."
