Hi all,

i am implementing a web proxy software (GFI Webmonitor), i have installed it on a microsoft server, i have the DHCP scope on a cisco router (2921), and i am trying to use option 252 to send (wpad.dat) file to the users, but it's not working,
i have tried it through the internet explorer options by adding a configuration script and it's working,
then i have tried the following syntax on my router:

"ip dhcp pool xxx
      option 252 ascii "http://x.x.x.x:8080/wpad.dat"

and it didn't work, has anyone tried using this option before and is it a syntax problem????
