Automatic Configuration

You can assign URLs to files that will automatically configure the customized browser. This feature is helpful if you want to control the settings of several users from one central location.

You can configure options by using .ins files, also known as IEAK profiles. Using .ins files, you can include standard proxy settings. You can also specify script files in .js, .jvs, or .pac format that you can use to configure and maintain advanced proxy settings.

Network servers using Domain Name System (DNS) and Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) can automatically detect and configure a browser's settings when the user first starts the browser on a network. For more information, see Automatic Detection and Configuration of Browser Settings.

If you specify URLs for both automatic configuration and automatic proxy (autoproxy), the autoproxy URL is incorporated into the .ins file. The correct form for the URL is http://share/test.ins.

To enable automatic configuration, select the Enable Automatic Configuration check box. In the Auto-config URL (.INS file) box, type the URL for the .ins file you want. In the Auto-proxy URL (.JS, .JVS, or .PAC file) box, type the URL for the autoproxy script.

To detect browser settings automatically, select the Automatically detect configuration settings check box.

Automatically configure every n minutes

You can specify the automatic configuration interval in minutes. If you enter 0 (zero) or do not enter a value, automatic configuration happens only when the user's computer is restarted.
