Dhcp advanced options


NethServer Version: NethServer release 7.6.1810 (final)

I created an additional custom template:

cat /etc/e-smith/templates-custom/etc/dnsmasq.conf/90config

# 90options - Eddie
# Tell Micro$haft to "Shut the F up"



Any specific need to use DHCP for this?

See Wikipedia or use Google to get some ideas what you can do in a WPAD file, and test your options!

You can redirect your clients to use the Proxy on your Firewall (PFsense).
