Corporate proxy issues
« on: May 18, 2017, 06:04:28 PM »
Hi There,

I have Avast Mac Security 2016 installed on macOS (Sierra). Also, I am behind a proxy ans having some issues. When I use (Web Proxy HTTP or HTTPS), all work's well. However, when I use Automatic Proxy Configuration, it seem that Avast is blocking the .pac script from my proxy server. Is there anyway I can configure Avast NOT to do or try to scan that script... Or what ever it's trying to do ?

Avast Web Shield acts sort of like a proxy in how it intercepts HTTPS traffic. Try using your proxy with the mail shield disabled, at least long enough to get the auto config file from your proxy.
