Create a Rule to Download a wpad.dat File

To enable the download of a wpad.dat file by a web browser on a client, you need to configure a rule that forwards the download request to the appropriate port on an appliance.

  1. On the user interface of the appliance, select Configuration | Appliances.
  2. On the appliances tree, select the appliance you want to make the wpad.dat file available on and click Port Forwarding.
  3. Under Port Forwarding Rules, click Add.
    The Add AppliancePortForwarding window opens.
  4. Configure settings for a port forwarding rule as follows:
    • Source Host —
    • Target Port — 80
    • Destination Host —
    • Destination Port — <File download port>
      As <File download port>, enter the HTTP port for the user interface of the appliance (default: 4711) or a dedicated port that you have configured.
  5. Click OK.
    The window closes and the rule appears in the list.
