Hello Maurizio,

Yes, .pac proxy script may be more difficult to manage.

I  could  do pure Wininet async download so i'll be sure to follow the
right proxy settings but its hard to leave ICS once you tasted it ;-)

Next  time i'll see Bill Gates, I'll ask him to implement some Wininet
IsLocalAddr function !

ML> I never had this situation so I delayed to "solve" it :-)

ML> Bye, Maurizio.
