    I have a question about Proxy Auto-Configuration (*.PAC) files that are
    downloaded and used from Web servers or from local HDD. I understand
    that it can change Web browsers' network proxy settings (with the URL)
    to go through another server.

    After reading
    and many other documents, it seems like there is no way to do the same
    for network devices (onboard network adapeter). Is there a way to do
    that with for system-wide proxy setup beside the Web browsers? I might
    be missing something since I am new to this network proxy area.

    Thank you in advance. :)
