Automatic Configuration Script - Proxy Pac File
Good evening all,
First of all, may I say what a great resource this site is. I've found many a resolution on here, it's usually my first port of call for any technical problems.
Onto the problem;
As a School I have configured a Proxy .Pac file for staff laptop users so they don't have to go through the mundane tasks of turning the proxy on and off depending which location they are - home or school.
I have tested this on numerous laptops which seems to work great, apart from a few Windows 7 machines, specifically HP Probooks 6560b. I have the Pac file running from the local drive, currently set to file://C:\Support\Proxy.pac - as I said this works brilliantly for the majority, and does work for all staff in school. As soon as the users with Probooks take their laptops home it doesn's seem to work; I did a bit of research on this and found if you enter in a full stop after the file:// protocol (file://.C:\Support\Proxy.Pac) then it will work from home.
This kind of defeats the object of the Pac file if they have to enter in a full stop to make it work at home. I'm just wondering if someone has come across this problem before, or if anyone has any suggestions as to why this is?
May I also point out that all staff laptops receive the same GPOs.
I look forward to a response, and hopefully contributing to resolutions for others.
