Summary

The Proxy Auto-Configuration (PAC) file defines how the browsers or agents choose a proxy server. This is useful in an environment with multiple proxies especially when the computers need to detect the appropriate proxy based on the destination.

You can configure OfficeScan (OSCE) clients to use a PAC file to choose the proxy server for updates, and connection with OSCE server or Smart Protection Server.

When the OSCE clients do not connect to the expected proxy, you can use some tools to test if your PAC file is coded properly.

To configure the OSCE clients to use a PAC file:

  1. Open the OfficeScan Administration console.
  2. Navigate to:
    • For OSCE XG: Agents > Global Agent Settings > Network tag > Proxy Configuration.
    • For OSCE 11.0: Agents > Global Agent Settings > Proxy Configuration.
    • For OSCE 10.6: Networked Computers > Global Client Settings > Proxy Configuration.
  3. Use automatic configuration script and address for PAC script.

To test the PAC file:

Use the following tools to show the proxy specified by the PAC file. For example, http://OSCESERVER.DOMAIN.LOCAL/officescan/download/server.ini.
