10.4: Access proxy servers that use .pac files via Safari
Authored by: houchin on Jun 21, '05 01:29:31PM

While it is great that Safari (and parts of the OS) now support .pac files, many notible items do not: QuickTime Player, iCal and Camino are the ones that specifically came to mind. I was configured to use my companies .pac file for a while, but ultimately went back to specifying proxies manually.

10.4: Access proxy servers that use .pac files via Safari

Apple still does not support proxies correctly. It's a really basic thing to be able to do, and they don't get it. Bothers me that I have a massive, manually configured, network stack in my PowerBook, and I still have to "login" to a bunch of internal websites. Also - Mail... not so much with the proxy. Entourage 2004, not so much with the proxy. I am forced to use Entourage v.X to use my Exchange account at work and still IMAP to my .Mac account, because v.X lets me specify proxy settings. *sigh*
