I have built an iPad app which is in use in schools. It acts as a front end to a web based app and as such communicates in a Restful manner with some web services published on our website using JSon. All very standard and simple. Works great.
The problem is configuration with regards to proxy servers. If the iPad is configured with proxy settings manually (a single proxy address is entered) everything works fine but if the iPad is configured using the Automatic setting and a PAC file it fails to connect to the proxy.
Has anyone encountered this scenario (ipad app connects with manual proxy settings but not with automatic proxy settings (PAC file))? Any ideas?
