Property Value

An IWebProxy instance used to send requests.



WebRequest, HttpWebRequest, ServicePoint, and WebClient are obsolete, and you shouldn't use them for new development. Use HttpClient instead.

The Proxy property identifies the IWebProxy instance that communicates with remote servers on behalf of this WebClient object. The proxy is set by the system using configuration files and the Local Area Network settings. To specify that no proxy should be used, set the Proxy property to null.

For information on automatic proxy detection, see Automatic Proxy Detection.
