Hello,

 

The Spotify Windows version 1.0.42.151.g19de0aa6 don't support

automatic proxy detection when the network uses DHCP WPAD.

 

The Spotify client should be able to read the proxy configuration when

DHCP Option 252 is used in an corpoate network.

The Spotify client should download the wpad.dat file,
where Spotify will get the url for where this file is located by reading the DHCP Option 252 (if exist) when the client is using DHCP. The WPAD.dat contains all ip adresses of the proxy servers and ports to be used and also the adresses that shall be excluded for proxy.

 Internet Explorer, Edge and Chrome browser do support DHCP WPAD so that the end user don't need to configure the proxy settings when moving between various nettvork.
