nambija -> DNS WPAD - logon box (3.Jul.2007 10:57:04 AM)

can you please help, configured auto IE settings using wpad-DNS with a entry in the DNS domain. I have not created a DHCP 252 entry or any of the stuff you need to with DHCP. I am only using DNS to get this to work.

It works great but at first logon you get the logon box

Any ideas ?

I am curious...Is your autoconfig file on the ISA box or another server?

Duh...  Sorry.  I guess I need some more coffee. 

Anyway are you getting any errors in your log files that can perhaps point to a specific rule which is denying it?

jmilito no worries,

I is have trouble finding the gobal option as discussed, any chance you can point me in the write direction.

I have had a little coffee this morning...[;)] Here is an additional resource you may find helpful.


Go into your log file and do a url search for "contains" wpad. This may give you a clue as to what rule is requiring you to authenticate as I suspect that is probably the most likely case.

To troubleshoot you could create a rule near the top of your custom rule sets:


Internal (or test workstation) to url set (with wpad.localdomain.com)

All Users

If this is the case. This should allow you to get to the wpad without authentication.
