Proxy detection

2007-02-06 11:58:39 PM
In my application I am using idSocksInfo to configure proxy settings. for
TIdTCPClient (Indy 9)
In some certain cases the users however do not know the proxy address and
port. I usually ask them to open the Internet Explorer (or the browser they
use) and copy the settings into my application's proxy settings.
This however does not work for them when their browser is configured to use
automatic configuration script.
Could you please advise how I can make it easier for my clients to configure
their proxy settings in case their browsers are set tu use an automaitic
configuration script.
Is there a way to get it (API call or sth) and read the settings from this
configration file.
Any help appreciated
Thanks in advance
