pactester 1.0.8


0 reviews

Pactester is a tool to test Proxy Auto Configuration (PAC) files. PAC files are used by browsers to determine the 'right' proxy for a URL. Since the PAC file evaluation mechanism is generated inside the browser and cannot be accessed from outside, the only way to tell which proxy your browser will use for a specific URL is manual inspection of the PAC file. But manual inspection doesn't really scale very well. Pactester resolves this problem. It makes use of JavaScript interpreter and Netscape/Mozilla APIs to evaluate the PAC files and automates the whole process.

Pactester reads a PAC file, evaluates it in a JavaScript context and uses this PAC file's logic to determine the proxy for a specific URL.

Usage: ./pactester <-p pacfile> <-u url> [-h host] [-c client_ip]

./pactester <-p pacfile> <-f urlslist> [-c client_ip]


-p pacfile: PAC file to test

-u url: URL to test

-h host: Host part of the URL

-c client_ip: client IP address (defaults to IP address of the machine on which script is running)

-f urlslist: a file containing list of URLs to be tested.


./pactester -p wpad.dat -u

./pactester -p wpad.dat -u -c

./pactester -p wpad.dat -f url_list
