        Hi squiders,

I'm running Squid 1.1.20 on, port 3128.
My Netscape(Communicator 4.01) PAC (Proxy Auto-Config) doesn't work.
When trying , the i've got:
"Netscape is unable to locate the server
 The server doesn't have a DNS entry"

I've configured my Netscape as:
Preferences/Advanced/Proxies/Automatic PC(URL):

where is running Apache/1.2.4:
srm.conf: AddType application/x-ns-proxy-autoconfig pac
mime.types: application/x-ns-proxy-autoconfig pac

function FindProxyForURL(url, host)
            if (url.substring(0, 5) == "http:") return "PROXY";

Even using the script from Squid FAQ (written by Oskar Pearson), my
Netscape (browser) couldn't connect to the proxy.
Of course, my manual proxy configuration works fine.

Could someone tell me, where is the problem ?
