I set the global settings of the machine to use an autoproxy configuration script. e.g. http://autoproxy.mycompanydomain.exe:8080, but still there are some network apps that require an explicit proxy setting. I assume that this is because those apps don't know how to access the global proxy settings. How can i see the global proxy settings that were configured automatically so i can copy them to the settings of these troublesome apps?
You can see the configuration script with, e.g.:
If you don't use explicit script URL, you may try:
Of course anything else than 'curl' may be used to download the data, though web browsers may try to interpret the script instead of just displaying it.
Many Linux application (including wget or curl) use the $http_proxy/$HTTP_PROXY, $HTTPS_PROXY and $NO_PROXY environment variables for proxy configuration. You may put your 'global settings' there (e.g. via your ~/.profile)
You can go to http://wpad/wpad.dat in the browser. It will download the
wpad.dat file, where you can open it to inspect it.
You could also use
curl wpad/wpad.dat or
curl --noproxy '*' wpad/wpad.dat
(In my case,
curl was giving me a 302 redirect. Then when I tried
curl -L to follow the redirect, it gave me a "Connection refused" error. Finally
curl --noproxy '*' worked for me.)
