PAC file deployment for Mac
Before deploying the proxy, you will have to remove any other filtering software on the device. You will also need to remove other certificates and allow pop-up windows in Safari, or whichever browser the Filter proxy is being deployed to.
For Safari, go to the Safari menu, choose Preferences> Security> uncheck Block pop-up windows.
To get the Mac PAC file, go to:
- Hāpara Filter's Admin Console> Deployment > Windows and Mac. Copy the PAC file URL from the Windows and Mac section.
- On the Mac device, open System Settings then go to Network> Advanced> Proxies> Select Auto Proxy Configuration. In the URL text box, enter the Hāpara Filter PAC file URL.
- Open the browser and click the lock icon at the search bar to show certificate.
