The PAC file, written in Java Script, should have the proxy HOST ip/name in it. Can you open the PAC with text editor and read the code to find your host designation, or am I missing your point?

thanks Tanner Man,
 i dont want to parse the pac file for proxy IP, for i am already doing it. I just wanted to avoid pac file reading.

SO there is an alternative.

void __stdcall CallMaster(
      HINTERNET hInternet,
    DWORD_PTR dwContext,
    DWORD dwInternetStatus,
    LPVOID lpvStatusInformation,
    DWORD dwStatusInformationLength)

    REQUEST_CONTEXT *cpContext;
    cpContext = (REQUEST_CONTEXT*)dwContext;
    char szStatusText[80];

    switch (dwInternetStatus)
                   CString d((char*)lpvStatusInformation);

From this i can obtain the Proxy form pac file without parasing it.


So you solved it then? GREAT
