If the following conditions are true, the Windows Update client locates the proxy server by processing the automatic configuration script:

  • Internet Explorer cannot discover the proxy server by using Method 1.
  • The Use automatic configuration script check box is selected in Internet Explorer.

To view the Use automatic configuration script check box, follow these steps:

  1. Start Internet Explorer.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  3. Click the Connections tab.
  4. If you connect to the Internet by using a proxy server on the local area network, clickLAN Settings. If you connect to the Internet by using a proxy server for a dial-up or VPN connection, click that connection, and then click Settings.
