[jitsi-dev] [Feature] Auto proxy conf


#1

Hi all, congrats for Jitsi , it's a great piece of software and easily
portable.

To help push jitsi in the enterprise world , I suggest to retrieve proxy
configuration from the system and set it up.

On of the issue is that a lot of companies use pac proxy file and I don't
know if your proxy library supports it ?

Thanks for the kind words!

Hmm. Don't you think they could include the proxy address in the
provisioning configuration? Because in an enterprise, I can rarely think of
a situation where the proxy needs to be configured, but everything else is
left to the user.

Not at all, it's really simpler than that.

A software that want to access the internet on a machine configured to use
a proxy should try to guess the settings . If it fails to connect to
internet, you can be sure that 98% of the users will uninstall it and
forget it :slight_smile:
