I've now tried it - doesn't work. Sorry.
PXE boot (RIPlinux),
the file (your name: "wpad.dat") exists,
if I choose the firefox option
Edit/Preferences/Advanced/Network/Settings/Automatic proxy ...
then it works as desired.
And the DHCP part of dnsmasq works well too.
But without the special firefox entry the client doesn't see the proxy
options - how can I test if (and/or how) the dhcp-option 252 does work?
