How do I configure option 252 in DHCP server?

The MS technet article shown below says I can configure a WPAD entry in my DHCP scope, but doesnt give specific instructions on how to do so. The highest number I see on the options I can add is 249, and no option related to WPAD seems to be present.


Can someone tell me how to do this in simple step by step instructions?

Hi priceep,

Does this KB article help?

"How To Configure Firewall and Web Proxy Client Autodiscovery in Windows 2000"


By default, the entry isnt enabled and you will have to create the entry manually.

Toniur was quick to answer, and his link got me what I needed, but I still had to poke around a little bit. Stirrins comment is dead on. The wording in the original tech article and in the one Toniur referenced are a little vague, and I think it takes a keen eye to spot the dif between the various places in the DHCP server where you can see these settings. Thanks to both for their help.
