Sound like you are looking for "Web Proxy Auto-Discovery Protocol" by using DHCP option 252.

 

https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-wrec-wpad-01

 

Section 4.4.1:

 

   The DHCP option code for WPAD is 252 by agreement of the DHC working
   group chair.  This option is of type STRING.  This string contains a
   URL which points to an appropriate config file.  The STRING is of
   arbitrary size.
   An example STRING value would be:
   "http://server.domain/proxyconfig.pac"
