Networking: Using Automatic Configuration Script

jason.the.adams's picture


I'm using LAPP (Debian) on a server for use at a client's laboratory. Now that it's here, I realized I forgot to install the fonts to the server. The server is on the network, and technically has access to the outside world, but the IT crew here has a configuration script they direct computers to for loading the appropriate proxy settings and whatnot. In windows there's an obvious place to put in the address of the script, but I can't find how to do this in Linux. Guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Chances are a Windows config script won't work on Linux...

TBH I haven't had much to do with proxies, but the one time I did I set DHCP to pass on automatically pass that info (although not sure if that works ok with Windows?)

Sorry that I can't directly answer your question... Google is probably your best bet (TKL v12 servers are based on Debian 6/Squeeze).
