Hi Luke,

Hope you are doing fine.

I have recently started using Pidgin and it's really a nice application. The
only problem is that most of the times I have to work on a VPN and when on
the VPN I connect to the internet using automatic proxy .pac url.

Pidgin help says that:Can Pidgin use my Windows (IE) Proxy Settings?
<http://developer.pidgin.im/wiki/Using%20Pidgin#CanPidginusemyWindowsIEProxySettings>

Yes, if you set the proxy preference to "Use Environmental Settings", Pidgin
will parse the HTTP Proxy setting from Windows as long as you have a
specific server set; auto-detection and configuration via .pac URL do not
work, nor do proxy bypass settings.

So the problem is I am unable to connect the pidgin to the outer world while
I am behind the VPN. Just want to know if there is any way I can connect the
Pidgin to outer world using that Pac file? I am a techie.. so modifying
complicated config files won't be a problem for me if there is a workaround
available. Would be glad if you respond. Many thanks.

Bipin.
