Re: Squid, Netscape Parent and proxy.pac

I added in the following statement to squid.conf
mime_table /etc/squid/mime.conf

and then the following to mime.conf in /etc/squid/mime.conf
\.pac$ application/x-ns-proxy-autoconfig anthony-unknown.gif
- image

But when I restart Squid I get the following error message.
1999/04/15 21:05:54| parseConfigFile: line 492 unrecognized: 'mime_table

Any ideas ?

Hi Simon,

Try adding a line like this to your SQUIDDIR/etc/mime.conf
 \.pac$ application/x-ns-proxy-autoconfig anthony-unknown.gif - image
