Hi All

 

I have a configured a Zscaler PAC file deployment to Windows 10 devices via both Device Restrictions and CSP.

 

While this deploys OK the Windows 10 devices seem to completely ignore the PAC file.

 

Any ideas or help on how to get this to work?

 

Info appreciated.

 

Stuart

Hi Stuart,

 

how do you provide the .pac file? It should work if you provide it by http: or https: protocol and make sure the mime type is correct. Delivery over file: or ftp: is not supported. Are you also sure there is no mistake in the pac file itself?

 

see here for further information:

Windows 10 does not read a PAC file referenced by a file protocol

best,

Oliver
