I have been successfully using WPAD for a long time,
via DNS only. My Windows hosts do get their IP address,
domain-name, DNS servers (etc) from DHCP though.

Are you sending your domain name via DHCP;
options domain-name "domain.org";
Is there a "wpad" entry in the domain that the Windows host is in?

I didn't need to bother with that.
You _may_ need to ensure that the web server is setup as
a HTTP/1.0 "real IP" address server not a HTTP/1.1 virtual
