Public Property Proxy As IWebProxy

Property Value

Type: System.Net.IWebProxy

An IWebProxy that contains the proxy information for making requests through a firewall. The default value is the operating system proxy settings.

Use the Proxy property if a client needs to use different proxy settings than those in the system settings. Use the WebProxy class to set the proxy settings, because it implements IWebProxy.

Default proxy settings can be set in a configuration file. For details, see Configuring Internet Applications.

The following example sets the following proxy settings prior to invoking the Math XML Web service: the proxy server to http://proxyserver, the proxy port to 80 and the bypass to the proxy server for local addresses.

Dim math As New MyMath.Math()

' Set the proxy server to proxyserver, set the port to 80, and specify
' to bypass the proxy server for local addresses.
Dim proxyObject As New WebProxy("http://proxyserver:80", True)
math.Proxy = proxyObject

' Call the Add XML Web service method.
Dim total As Integer = math.Add(8, 5)
