Applies To: Forefront Threat Management Gateway (TMG)

On client computers that are not running Forefront TMG Client, you can enable automatic discovery in the browser properties. Automatic detection is supported on Internet Explorer 8, Internet Explorer 7, and Internet Explorer 6.

The following procedures describe how to configure Web browsers for automatic detection by using WPAD, or using a static configuration script.

Enabling browsers for automatic detection using WPAD

  1. In Internet Explorer, click the Tools menu, and then click Internet Options.

  2. On the Connections tab, click LAN Settings.

  3. On the Local Area Network (LAN) Settings tab, select Automatically detect settings.

Enabling browsers for automatic detection using a static configuration script

  1. In Internet Explorer, click the Tools menu, and then click Internet Options.

  2. On the Connections tab, click LAN Settings.

  3. On the Local Area Network (LAN) Settings tab, select Use automatic configuration script. Enter the script location in the following format: http://fqdnserver:port/array.dll?Get.Routing.Script, where fqdnserver is the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the Forefront TMG server. The configuration script location can be specified in each browser, or it can be set for all clients who use Group Policy.

noteNote:
If WPAD detection is enabled and an automatic configuration script is specified, the script location will be used if WPAD detection fails.
