Question #862

What is wpad.dat exactly?


The wpad.dat file is used by Internet Explorer to obtain needed information that allows the client browser to use ISA Server’s proxy service for Internet access. Clients running Internet Explorer for accessing the Internet may be configured using either DNS or DHCP, but for the ISA Server deployment, team members used DHCP to provide clients with a wpad.dat configuration.
