I have a local proxy script provided to me by ICN (Illinois Centry Network). This file contains proxy server information that will provide "ICN Filtering" for the local network that I preside over.

To config IE7 to use this script file (it is called the ".pac" script), I go to Tools -> INternet OPtions -> Connections Tab -> LAN settings

My question......what syntax would I use in the "Use automatic configuration script" setting if the script in question was a local file on the computer. The text box says "Address" but if the file is local (I don't have it on a public web server), what the syntax be in this text box? Would it just be a Windows path statement like "C:/file/script"?

Also, what would the syntax be if I don't have it on a web server, or on the local machine, but on an internal Windows 2003 Server on a shared directory?

An illustration of what I am talking about is at the bottom of this web page:
