In company I have a shared drive potentially in another domain. The computer use proxy via the auto configuration script and that is configured via Internet Explorer.
If I put program e.g. putty.exe in the local disk, I am able to connect to the Internet. However if I put that in the shared drive and execute from there, it is not able to connect. with error gethostname failed.
This page also suggest copying to local solved the issue
I found this issue is not specific to putty, but also for other programs e.g. eclipse.
What is the mechanism for program to get the proxy when executed in shared drive? How to work around besides copying it into local disk?
