This example creates an HttpWebRequest and queries for an HttpWebResponse. The example then checks to see if the server is responding with the same version.

        Uri ourUri = new Uri(url);
// Creates an HttpWebRequest for the specified URL. 
HttpWebRequest myHttpWebRequest = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(ourUri); 
myHttpWebRequest.ProtocolVersion = HttpVersion.Version10;
// Sends the HttpWebRequest and waits for the response.
HttpWebResponse myHttpWebResponse = (HttpWebResponse)myHttpWebRequest.GetResponse(); 
// Ensures that only Http/1.0 responses are accepted. 
if(myHttpWebResponse.ProtocolVersion != HttpVersion.Version10)
	Console.WriteLine("\nThe server responded with a version other than Http/1.0");
if (myHttpWebResponse.StatusCode == HttpStatusCode.OK)
	Console.WriteLine("\nRequest sent using version Http/1.0. Successfully received response with version HTTP/1.0 ");
// Releases the resources of the response.
