I recently found out about the wonderful world of "Autoconfiguration" in
browsers for proxying.
At the moment I'm entering manually the proxy to all cleint browsers, which
is a headache.
Following many sources I have tried the following:
wpad.dat on wpad.domain.org
(specifying the script manually works, so the script is not a problem)
option wpad code 252 text;
option wpad "http://wpad.domain.org/wpad.dat"
Trying to retrieve:
is successful manually. Using the IP works as well.
I even added the following in httpd.conf for apache:
AddType application/x-ns-proxy-autoconfig .dat
All of which fails to work.
Checking apache's logs, the wpad.dat file is never even queried.
Any ideas what to do?
The other solution is using a login script for NT to run a reg script, but
I would prefer the above.
