We are running following servers:
(1) DHCP Server on a Windows 2003 Server. (172.20.0.3)
(2) Squid Proxy and Bind DNS and Fireall on Ubuntu Linux Server. (172.20.0.1)
Now, I want to configure my Linux Server so that client browers can detect Proxy Server automatically. Because we have arround 400 Client PCs and configuring them manually is a lenghty and cumborsome job.
Previously, we were using ISA 2006 as proxy and I had made WPAD entry in Windows-based DHCP to distribute proxy address: http://isaserver:8080/wpad.dat
, and it was working well.
But now, I have removed ISA and using Linux-based Proxy and I don't know"
1. How and where to make wpad.dat file ?
2. Will I need to configure Apache so that clients get wpad.dat file using "http://myapacheserver:3128/wpad.dat
? (Proxy Server is listening on by default 3128 port number)
Please note that everything is running well. I just want to know how can I distribute the "proxy settings" automatically.
