We have a VC++ application which runs on a client machine and we need to know the Proxy Settings to connect to the remote Server. We require to findout this Info. based ont the default browser of the Client PC. To our knwoledge the IE stores the Proxy Info in the registry and the Netscape stores in the Pref.js file (for each user profile) .
If the Client Browser Settings are ProxyAutoConfiguration then a URL has to be specified which is a Java Script code.
So in all these above settings our application need to know the
Proxy config . Is their any method to read the pref.js and as well any way to get the proxy settings from When auto configuration is set.
the sample Java script file for Auto config would look like this
return "PROXY 192.168.1.1:8080, DIRECT"
Any response in this regard is highly appreciated.
