Hello
i have Kerio Control 8 and proxy enabled

when i use chrome/IE - the system detects proxy automatically
but when i use firefox - and "Auto-detect proxy settings for this network" option - firefox doesn't connect
if i put h_t_t_p://PROXY:3128/pac/proxy.pac to Atutomatic proxy configuration URL - it works

was anybody luck to enable automatic proxy for Firefox?

i've made the trick:
1. create DNS record for WPAD.domain and pointed it to server with webserver installed
2. created wpad.dat file with proxy settings (like proxy.pac)

so firefox gets it's proxy settings from
http://wpad.domain/wpad.dat and works fine

Hello,

I configure my Kerio DHCP with option 252 MSIE proxy autodiscovery :
http : / / wpad.mydomain:3128/pac/proxy.pac (who is my kerio control server).
It works fine with IE but Firefox is looking for http : / / wpad.mydomain/wpad.dat.

I have to use wpad configuration in Firefox and I can't use other web server.

Is it possible to add a wpad.dat file in the web server of Kerio Control appliance ?

Best regards.

Benoit

Did you ask the Firefox developers to fully support the WPAD protocol? They should support DHCP and DNS methods, with DHCP > DNS.

Another option would be to run Control as a VM with a support VM acting as a web server. I advocate this a lot since everyone will soon be assuming you are working in a virtualized environment.

Finally, if you SSH into Control, you should be able to add that file, but there probably are no guarantees the file would preserved on upgrades.

Yes I have the latest version (27.0.1).

This is an open bug in Firefox since 2006 !! (Firefox Bug 356831, sorry I can not give you the URL because I have not post enough message)

Firefox does not check for DHCP's option 252.
Firefox just search http : / / wpad.xxxx/wpad.dat

Temporarily, I would like to add this file in kerio Control Web server by SSH. But I don't know in which folder I have to put the file.

Thank you for your help.
