I have been successfully using proxy.pac on my network for a long time, but recently I have noticed a problem that is getting worse (and I'm not finding a solution)...
Within minutes most computers are making hundreds (sometimes thousands) of requests to the webserver (apache) to load proxy.pac.
Analyzing Apache logs and network traffic, proxy.pac is successfully transferred on all requests.
As result of this: apache logs increase dramatically in a short time, network traffic (between stations and web server with proxy.pac) also increases tremendously and there is a considerable loss of speed / performance to open Internet pages.
This issue happens regardless of operating system (Windows or Mac OS X). The default browser used on the network is Google Chrome.
Has anyone here ever been through this? Tips?
Thank you in advance.
