Download from URL on a proxy Server

The code below works on my local machine.  However to connect to external websites on the production server, I have to set the hostname to ftpProxy.

Example:

On the old server I would use these credentials.

set HOSTNAME=ftp.site.com
set USERID=user
set PWD=yyy

On the new server I would use these.

set HOSTNAME=ftpproxy
set USERID=user@ftp.site.com
set PWD=yyy

How do I get this to work on the production server?  I'm using a C# windows form program.

        private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            try
            {
                WebClient client = new WebClient();
                string Webpage = client.DownloadString("https://www.Site.com/xmlfeed/xml_prices_full.asp?code=99201&user=xxxml&pass=yy");

I recommend you trying this.

using System.Net;
            WebProxy webProxy = new WebProxy("http://10.1.1.1:8080");
            WebClient wClient = new WebClient();
            wClient.Proxy = webProxy;

Open in new window


Where http://10.1.1.1:8080 is the address of the proxy.

Then try to authenticate again the same way you are. You may have to try both ways.

To supply the username/password for the proxy

                client.Proxy.Credentials = new NetworkCredential("myusername", "mypassword");
                client.Proxy.GetProxy(new Uri("proxy.server.com:8080"));
