#251 closed Feature Wish (fixed)

dhcp-option 252 on iOS

I would like to request a feature so it's possible to proxy the http(s)-traffic from the client. Usually the dhcp-option 252 does the trick, but it seems that it's currently not supported on the IOS version. I'm getting the following log-message:

unknown DHCP option: [dhcp-option] [252] [http://wpad-server/wpad.dat] 

Hopefully this feature can be implemented, so we can proxy the http(s)-request in our organization.

Thank you for your time!

There is

dhcp-option PROXY_HTTP 3128

in more recent Connect clients (starting with 1.0.1, I think). Will that do the job for you?

(It's not exactly the same - the wpad stuff sounds like proxy autoconfiguration - but might be good enough)

Based on the lack of feedback I suspect the proxy support in recent OpenVPN Connect clients is good enough. I'll close this ticket as "fixed" - please reopen as necessary.
