WPAD + IE on Windows 7 - Stops Working RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am having trouble with WPAD and IE on Windows 7. Option 252 is set, and so is the wpad alias. The client is able to download the PAC file by directly accessing either URL.

    However after a while, IE stops seeking WPAD even though the 'auto detect' box is checked, and thus there are no proxy settings.

    Using the rest function on Tools-->Internet Options-->Advanced restores functionality, but it later breaks again.

    I am not having this issue with XP, only W7 machines.

    Any advice is welcomed.
