Hi,

I need to redirect a few URLs to our local proxy server as they can not be displayed without proxy server. Is there any way, where you can specify this in xp?

Thanks,

But we haven't got an ISA server. We have to use a third party proxy server, where we have no access at all, in order to access to certain sites what we use on daily basis.
Basically there is a proxy pac file on that system but with IE7 option "Use automatic configuration script" does not work at all. So I need to have some form of a script which will redirect certain URLs to proxy server and others not.

Thanks

it doesn't accept some time
immediatly the automatic configuration as do Firefox, MSIE needs
again to re setup his internet connection, so from MSIE setup:

tools-->internet options-->connections-->setup--> wizard new internet
connections (yes again)

It will rewrite the old configuration and so will work with Proxy.pac

No, unfortunatelly this doesn't solved it. For some wierd reason it does not take the pac file. I have tried to uninstall IE 7 but without any difference.
