Hi Bob,

I'm trying to implement the DHCP discovery portion of the WPAD  
protocol <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wpad> from within Revolution.  
On a network where the WPAD protocol is implemented the network  
administrator can have the DHCP server respond to "option 252"  
communicated using the DHCPInform message. The response from the DHCP  
server is the url where the PAC file is that should be used for  
determining the proxy server IP address that should be used for  
outgoing connections.

Currently on networks that use WPAD Revolution applications cannot  
connect to the internet.
