Proxy.Pac unreachable RRS feed

  • Question

  • We started experiencing an issue with some customers unable to browse out to the internet.  Manually setting their proxy server to the address works, but not when we use the http:\\proxy.pac. In the auto configuration script area  on a working machine entering the http:\\proxy.pac in the address bar prompts for you to download/open the pac.  On the non working machine it ALSO cant reach the destination.  If *I* log on to the machine it works as intended.  We are using preferences to push these settings and over 22,000 machines are working correctly.  But recently a number of people have started to experience this issue, and we are perplexed.  thoughts?
