Wpad and firefox and nginx


#1

does any of you chaps know why, when firefox looks for wpad file
error.log records:

open() “/usr/share/nginx/mail.dom.local/wpad.dat” failed (2: No such
file or directory)

this is not a vs* wpad.dom.local’s content, this vs serves from
somewhere else
and a second later when pointed, firefox displays wpad.dom.local website
correctly
when pointed directly to wpad file, obviously, wants to download it, so
it sees it
only this initial wpad thing??

both domains are virtutal, both use the same ip
it’s seem like it fails over alphabetically?? because 'm before 'w
if I give a different IP to mail.dom.local all works, firefox finds wpad

is it some sort of nginx constraints or firefox goes nuts
haven’t a chance to troubleshoot it yet, but I will

I’m really curious if you have come across it?
regards

*vs - virtual server

it’s me again,
a.dom.local - not even having it as a fqdn(nothing in dns), only one
more vs in separate file for nginx config
and firefox gets that wpad file??? which one is it, firefox??
