Ruckus + Auto Proxy config?
First let me preface this by saying I might be being stupid here or misunderstanding this:
I have been setting up a Ruckus network in school and saw the option for auto configuring proxy settings.
So, I followed the Ruckus guide to setting up WPAD and now have that working via both DHCP and DNS. I tested this and machines are getting correct proxy settings via WPAD so went to move on to setting up proxy auto config in the Ruckus ZD.
This is where I am now confused. The Ruckus guide says to enable auto proxy detection in the client browsers and add the IP of the WPAD server to a wlan in ZD.
That's all well and good, but as far as I can see, if you tell browsers to auto config proxy settings their are going to use the normal method of getting the proxy by DHCP or DNS. So what is the ZD auto config option actually doing?
I could understand if the ZD was acting as a proxy for the client and using the IP of the WPAD server to get the WPAD.dat but that does not appear to the case as the instructions tell you to configure the clients browsers and not setting any proxy settings disables internet access.
Anyone able to shed some light on this?
