Proxy Exceptions not working

Proxy Exceptions not working

Proxy Exceptions not working

I have a website that is super slow when accessing it through our web proxy.  the site owner recommended bypassing proxy based on prior experience.

I have turned off the proxy entirely and the performance of the site increases dramatically.  Yet when I turn the proxy on and add the site name to the proxy exceptions, its still slow.  I was wondering if I'm formatting it incorrectly.

it looks like this:  http://www.sitename.com;https://www.sitename.com;http://appq.sitename.com;https://appq.sitename.com

I'm using IE 6.  any suggestions?  am I formatting it wrong?  does it need a wildcard at the end of each site name?

RE: Proxy Exceptions not working

For all the conditions that are listed above, you would only need to have the exception: *.sitename.com.  Not that it's required for the examples you gave, but for the sake of thoroughness, you'd probably want to set your exceptions to: *.sitename.com;sitename.com.
