Description

system.net

Contains settings that specify how the .NET Framework connects to the network.

The webRequestModules element registers descendants of the WebRequest class to handle information requests to network hosts. Web request modules must implement the IWebRequestCreate interface.

The .NET Framework includes Web request modules for URIs that begin with http://, https://, and file://. You can override the default modules only by registering a custom module in the configuration file.

Configuration Files

This element can be used in the application configuration file or the machine configuration file (Machine.config).

The following code example registers the default HTTP module. You should replace the values for Version and PublicKeyToken with the correct values for the specified module.

<configuration>
  <system.net>
    <webRequestModules>
      <add prefix="http"
           type="System.Net.HttpRequestCreator, System, Version=2.0.3600.0,
           Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089"
      />
    </webRequestModules>
  </system.net>
</configuration>
