It is possible configure ip or domain bypass in the WSS portal for use in PAC File configuration or in the WSS Agent.

However as time passes the list can grow organically and it may be required to get an export / text version of this data to validate the list or any other type of audit / management task.

How can such text file export be setup / maintained easily overtime?


WSS Agent / Unified Agent / Explicit proxy


The WSS bypass list can be maintained on the WSS portal (image 1) where you can add / remove entries.

It is also automatically added to the PAC Management (images 2 and 3) so you can easily export this using the PFMS url and extract the data from the PAC file (image 4 and 5).
