Subject Re: [HttpClient] Is it possible to auto-discover proxy settings
Date Sat, 21 Feb 2004 16:34:00 GMT

HttpClient does not have built-in support for auto proxy discovery.   
You could certainly perform a GET on the URL and parse or execute the  
contained JavaScript (that's what it usually is I think).  Good luck.
