Question Proxy settings PAC file ignored ???

Hi, I have a Squid proxy and would like the browsers on my network to automatically use it.

I'm trying to use a PAC file to accomplish this , but it doesnt work ... it's almost as if the browser ignores the file. (both Firefox and IE)

this is the contests of my PAC file:

function FindProxyForURL(url, host) 
 if (isInNet(myIpAddress(), "", "")) 
  return "PROXY"; 
  return "DIRECT"; 
What am I doing wrong ?

Has no one tried this before ? Do you have any other suggestions ? I cannot configure it manually because of the many notebook users at my company.
