    OSX and Proxy.pac files

    I've setup a WAP to allow students to use the internet, I'm using DHCP option 252 WPAD to point to a proxy.pac file and this works ok for Windows clients but Macs won't pick up the file even though I've selected to auto detect the file. If I manually specify the location of the .pac file they work so they can clearly read and understand the file.

    Can anyone suggest where I'm going wrong, I don't know allot about OSX am I missing a setting somewhere?

    Any pointers appreciated.

    Thanks.


    EDIT

    Ah I might of found an answer! Unfortunatly I don't have an available DNS server in this WLAN which is why I used DHCP any suggestions?
