Configuration instructions for web proxy

If supported by the operating systems and programs, the configuration of a web proxy happens automatically via the Web Proxy Auto Discovery Protocol (WPAD) using the DNS name But as we don’t enforce the use of the web proxy the query of returns that no proxy is configured. Only with the explicit Proxy-Auto-Config (PAC) the proxy is activated. For help on how to configure this with common browsers, please refer to the following instructions.

Mozilla Firefox

Google Chrome

Microsoft Edge

Microsoft IE

Some applications may not understand the PAC protocol, and only offer to configure a single host name as a proxy. In this case, please use (Port 3128). But because the proxy auto config offers a much more efficient distribution of the request (with a higher cache hit probability) to the individual proxies, this should be preferred to an individually configured host where possible.
Within Unix/Linux this configuration can also be made using environment variable; for this purpose please set http_proxy, https_proxy or ftp_proxy to “”.
