Support for pac files in Proxy Settings of the Publisher

Our instance of PatchMyPC is installed on our Site Server which currently has open access to the Internet; this was implemented to support the Publisher downloading content direct from all the various vendors. Our new security policy dictates that we need to provide more granular Internet access, as such having to lock this down and provide the Publisher access via the Proxy Settings. We use Zscaler, however PatchMyPC does not currently have pac file support - is this something that can be implemented?

    Hello, thanks for bringing this up. This is definitely something we will be looking at in the future. At the moment, we only support a proxy configuration, but the proxy server, port, and authentication info must be manually provided.
