Symptoms

Edge client may fail to download PAC file and incorrectly apply proxy configuration after VPN connection.

Impact

PAC file download will fail and client will use incorrect proxy settings due to unavailability of PAC file.

Conditions

- User machine proxy configuration points to a proxy auto configuration file. - Network access proxy configuration points to a proxy auto configuration file. - PAC file URI in either case has uppercase characters. - PAC file is hosted on a server where resource names are case sensitive.

Workaround

Use only lowercase characters in PAC file URI.

Fix Information

Now Edge client can download PAC files from URIs that have uppercase as well as lowercase characters.
