Configuring Web browsers for automatic detection

For client computers that are not running Firewall Client for Microsoft Forefront Threat Management Gateway, you can enable automatic discovery in the browser properties. Automatic detection is supported in Internet Explorer 7, Internet Explorer 6, and Internet Explorer 5.

Configure WPAD as follows:

  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.

You can also configure Web proxy browsers to use a static configuration script, as follows:

  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 as 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.

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