    Exclamation [ipad] Help making a .PAC File to include HTTPS Proxy

    Hi guys,

    We are having terrible troubles with a lot of services not working across our proxy server (council owned) on ipad devices. We can't get mail application to work for any provider, cant stream videos etc

    I believe this might be due to the fact ipads don't support HTTPS proxy details without creating a .pac file

    Has anyone overcome the above by creating a .pac file? If so how do I go about making one?

    Many thanks

    Just create a notepad file and then change the extension to .pac.

    I don't know where you'd then put it to make the Devil Pads respond correctly, though. My last experiments were failures.

    We use a PAC file at our school successfully. Do you know your proxy settings? Feel free to message for details.
