    I'm trying to use the HTTP proxy setting for wifi but it doesn't accept the URL.

    I'm going to Settings > Wifi > Saved Networks > (name of wifi connection) > Checked "Use HTTP Proxy" > and in the Proxy Server box I'm putting in the URL to the proxy server (http://www.proxy.[url].com/proxy.pac)

    It just returns the error: "Must be a valid IP address or domain name"

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    A proxy is never a URL but always just a host name, for instance proxy.company.com

    This URL probably points to a proxy-auto-config file. I don't think those are supported. You could download that file and open it in a text editor to see what it does.

    it certainly can use proxy, i'm using it all the time, but as far as i know the open proxy you normally find online should be an IP address, with a port number, for example 132.53.7.80, port 8080 ( i made it up, don't try it ) and if the proxy can be an URL, or a host name (which beyond my knowledge base), from your description i'd guess that your proxy doesn't work because you didn't enter the port number. hope it helps.

    Proxies are certainly supported, but probably not proxy-auto-config (.pac) files. There are other mechanisms such as BES and DHCP to do that in a more reliable & standardized way. A .pac file contains a JavaScript function. You could look at that function in Notepad to see what the proxy should be.
