WSS not filtering in Chrome (.pac)

I need a solution

Hi All,

Hoping someone can shed some light on what is going on with WSS .pac file and Google Chrome.


Pac file URL is rolled out via GPO to all corporate PC’s

Created an explicit block rule on

Using Chrome, if you directly type it gets blocked, but if you google ABC or Triple J the site is displayed and does not filter through the proxy. Found that if a manual HTTP proxy to is used it correctly blocks.

Testing in Firefox the website is blocked fine in all instances.

So my question, is there a setting in chrome that is preventing the correct blocking of websites when using a symantec .pac file?

Thanks all,
