Action:

Attempts to execute an HTTP PUT and GET of a Proxy Auto Config (PAC) verification file to and from the HTTP server configured to service PAC files.

retryHttpPac simulates simultaneous selection of both of the following in the Preferences window:

  • Either of the IE Mode options newPac or mergedPac
  • The PAC Options option http://URL

Setting both of these items together triggers the automatic creation and maintenance of PAC files using HTTP URLs: given an appropriately configured HTTP server and Client configuration file httpPacURL element.

Note: Command execution does not modify current settings in the Client's Preferences window. However, if the IE Mode option proxy is selected, the command fails.

Syntax:

retryHttpPac 

If the file verification test succeeds, the Client Status bar displays a message like:

HTTP PAC files can be used.
