Proxy .pac file with Camino

If you use Camino, and apart from it still using QuickDraw its really OK, and you're on a corporate network, you might to use a .pac file to get to a proxy server.

It requires the manual creation of a text file, and adding the correct parameters:

Open TextEdit or TextWrangler or your choice of text editor, and save a file called 'user.js' in the location

~/library/Application Support/Camino

you can copy and paste the contents:

user_pref("network.proxy.type", 2);
user_pref("network.proxy.autoconfig_url", "http://foo.com/bar.pac");
user_pref("camino.use_system_proxy_settings", false);

(Replace http://foo.com/bar.pac with the URL supplied by your system administrator.)

Restart Camino and off you go
