I'm new to ISA server (but not to Windows or AD) and am trying to set up a test environment where's it's used as a Web Proxy with autoconfiguration of clients.
I've got the server installed and configured ok so it works if a client is manually set to use proxy.mydomain.com on port 8080 - I can see their session and history in the logs.

Now on to autodiscovery..
On the properties for the network within ISA I have ticked the "Publish automatic discovery information....."
Following the instructions here http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc302584.aspx I initially tried the DNS method of autoconfiguration. The first hiccup was that my DNS server refused to resolve wpad.mydomain.com to an IP address but I found out how fix that using this link http://www.mpking.com/archives/36-WPAD-does-not-resolve-in-DNS.html
Once the DNS issue was fixed I tested the browsers and they didn't use the proxy server, though if I tried, I could download the wpad file from wpad.mydomain.com/wpad.dat

Next I tested the DHCP method and set option 252 to be http://wpad.mydomain.com/wpad.dat , rebooted a test machine on that subnet and started to surf, but again it didn't send traffic to the proxy server....

Does anyone have any handy pointers where I might be going wrong as it all seems correct to me but I'm sure I've missed something really obvious.
