Automatic configuration Page
Use this page to create and make available proxy auto-config (PAC) scripts that determine the IP addresses and domains to access through the Smoothwall Filter and those to access directly.
Navigation: WEB PROXY > Web proxy > Automatic configuration.
|Built-in||Uses the built in PAC script.|
|Bypass proxy server for local addresses||Uses the Smoothwall Filter when connecting to local addresses. It makes users’ browsers bypass the Smoothwall Filter proxy if the address is a host name only, for example: myhostname. Browsers do not bypass the Smoothwall Filter proxy if the address is a fully qualified domain name (FQDN) for example: myhostname.example.local.|
|Refer to the proxy by domain name||Makes the Smoothwall Filter proxy use its domain name instead of IP addresses in the configuration file. Before turning on this option, make sure that you have a valid DNS configuration that resolves correctly for this host name. This option must be selected when using Kerberos authentication to use proxy automatic configuration.|
|Exception domains and IP addresses||
The IP address, IP address range, network address or host name that users might access directly.
|Advanced »||Expands the view to show the Exception regular expression domains.|
|Exception regular expression domains||
Only shown when you click Advanced ». A regular expression domain per line that users might access directly. In the example, this would turn off usage of the Smoothwall Filter for youtube.com, ytimg.com and subdomains such as www.youtube.com; but not, for example, fakeyoutube.com.
|Custom script template||Uses the custom PAC script that you upload.|
|Download||Downloads a template so that you can create your own custom PAC script.|
|Manage configuration script policy|
|Interface||The address that the configuration script should direct clients to.|
