I'm not too sure this is the right area to post this question, but couldn't see any other that really fitted either.
We have a new proxy server, which is up and running with no problem. What we want to do is have a PAC (Proxy Automatic Configuration) file for users. Have ceated the PAC file and it works okay when it's on an Intranet site, where we can publish it along the lines of http://server/unit.pac
and have that in the users browsers. Howver, due to company reasons we need to not have this on the Intranet Server but on a seperate file share server. We have shared a folder, which we can map a drive to and read the PAC file with no problem. But when we put file://server/unit.pac in the browser configuration it just does not work. But, if we map the shared drive on the PC and put in the mapped drive letter, as in file://x:/unit.pac it works okay? Is there some configuration that I'm missing when trying to pint to the shared drive, or is mapping the only way it can be done?
Does this make sense what we're trying to do?
Very keen to sort this out.
