    no problem

    on the iPhones / iPads / iPod Touches

    Assuming you have the latest iOS you need to click on "settings" "wifi" and then join your desired wifi network. After joining the network you click on the blue disclosure triangle, next to the wireless name. This opens up the advanced settings page. At the bottom of this page there is a "http proxy" section. Click "Auto" and then type in the location of your .pac file

    in our case its http://172.16.80.2/pac/pacfilename.pac

    I can paste our .pac file contents on here if anyone wants them - works a treat.
    Hi
    could you post the PAC file you have used on your server, please?
    thanks,
