I have a winfrom app which calls our webservice

some clients have proxy some dont.

Do we have to account for proxy or does the winform automatically get it from IE settings ?

Thanks in advance

You have to take care of this. Make a form to ask the user if he uses proxy or not .. also ask for the proxy credentials for the user in the same form... Heres a good tutorial for this.

that actually was not the answer I was looking for.

anyhow, here is what I ended up doing, for someone who might hit the same wall in the future

I added a form where users can enter their credentials for the firewall and the firewall info.

somewhat similar to the options on the IE options window

hope this explains
