Automatic Proxy Configuration Not Working On Mac

Troubleshooting Proxies

Check the current system proxy configuration.

scutil --proxy

If the current proxy situation is not displayed, then check the proxy status of different network service.

networksetup -getautoproxyurl "Wi-Fi"
networksetup -getautoproxyurl "Belkin USB-C LAN"

If only one service is set as an automatic proxy, you can set both or change service order.

  3. Drag services into the order you want.
  4. Click Ok.
