    If I put it into the LAN settings on the browser manually it works. If I type into the browsers 'use auto configuration script' this also works.

    i've uploaded the image of my network digram. Please can an expert assist?


  • You additionally have to put your wpad.dat on your Captive Portal Login Page as the first code. If someone opens a browser it asks for the wpad.dat file, witch can not be accessed because of the CP-Page. But if the wpad code is on yout CP-Login page it will be recognized as your wad.dat code.
