Automatic Proxy Configuration Script

Sep 15, 2010 at 2:37 PM


My company policy has the proxy details configured in an automatic proxy configuration script (pac file) which is web hosted. So I do not have the details of the proxy server, and thus am unable to login. Is it possible to specify the web URL to the automatic proxy configuration script file, as specified in IE and connect the application to the internet?

Normally Desktop Google Reader should take the same settings as Internet Explorer as long as you don't specify an individual proxy configuration. That said it should work out of the box if you can browse with IE. But I don't have automatic proxy configuration here so can't see it myself.

If it does not work have a look at the PAC-file itself - it's normally more or less readable text / script file where you can manually which proxy settings will be used
