Cause

Microsoft IIS loaded old orphaned proxy server settings from the registry.

Resolution

Microsoft IIS reads the proxy value from the DefaultConnectionSettings in multiple registry hives. The value is in binary.

DefaultConnectionSettings values that can contain the orphaned proxy data:

--HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Connections

--HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-18\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Connections

 Export these registry keys from a computer with no proxy settings set in Internet Options and import to the SMP Server.

The settings are picked up on the fly by IIS.
