Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Basically, I have want to test out WPAD(Web Proxy Autodiscovery Protocol ) , PAC. But I would like to do it without touching the Network DHCP server. So, can you suggest a way in which I can achieve that.

Will changing the local /etc/dhclient.conf file be enough ?

Thanks

What part do you want to test? The PAC file? DHCP discovery? DNS discovery? –  mgorven Mar 8 '13 at 23:12

You can override specific options in the DHCP client configuration /etc/dhclient.conf:

option wpad-url code 252 = text;
interface "eth0" {
    supersede wpad-url "http://wpad.example.com/proxy.pac";
}
