hrllo guys, I have a proxy.pac file that i tested on my local disk and worked fine for me, now i wanna centralize it on a server and publish it to my users, should the hosting server be a web server ? if yes, how to configure the proxy.pac file on a web server ( step by step please)......Thanks in advance.
Hello, Richard i worked it out,one thing am not sure about now, is there any possibility to host more than one website via IIS by using one NIC ? ( i had an idea of using one physical NIC but bounding a pool of IP's to it so each website can be assigned a different IP address) is that possible or i have to use a dedicated NIC for each website ?

In addition to what Tom said, you can also use a single NIC and a single IP address as long as you specify different host headers or different ports. As long as one of those three things is unique, you can host multiple web sites on a single web server.
Hello, Tom, i added an IP address to the NIC, anything to be done after that ? (like in dns or so), how will users be able to know which IP to use for each website ?
Richard, i tried to keep one IP address and change the port number assigned for the second website (which is holding the proxy.pac script) to be 8000 instead of default 80 but didnt work and users couldnt reach the proxy.pac script, Any thing has to be done on the user side after changing port number assigned for website ? and what about if i wanna use same port number but change host header, if my url for 2nd website is http://server1.domain.org/proxy.pac, what should be the unique host header in that case ?? ( i tried server1.domain.org but didnt work )....
Richard is right about that. There are three ways to host web sites on IIS -- one per IP address, one per port, or one per host header.
Are you using IIS 6 or 7?
IIS version is 6, actually i changed the WSUS from using port 80 (default) to port 8530 and kept the site hosting the proxy.pac script as default (since i didn't know what else to change if i change the default port ).
everything is working fine now.....Thanks alot for your help guys, appreciate your time, cheers.
