how to force a dynamic proxy server (avoiding direct connection) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone

    I'm trying to setup a pac file to force Internet Explorer to go to a particular proxy server depending on the location where the user is. For example, if subnet = A then proxy A, if subnet B then proxy B.. I want to avoid users going directly out to the internet EVEN when they are at home.. so even when they are connected to public networks the proxy servers must be used.

    I thought of setting up an internal proxy web hosting URL that equals a public one, and on the internal pac file I say subnet A, subnet B etc.. for the external one, I add all the proxy servers to the DNS as generic A records (proxy.domain.blabl) and do DNS round robin.

    However, if Internet Explorer cannot find the proxy file at first launch.. it disregards it all together.. how can I stop this behavior...and force the proxy setting?

  • Hi,

    As far as I know, it seems no such an option to achieve this. You can check whether a bat or script could do this.
