The program below allows me to download from a URL on a proxy server.
Is it possible to do the same using a batch file?

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using System.Net;
using System.IO;
namespace WebDownloader
{
    public partial class Form1 : Form
    {
        public Form1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
        }

        private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            try
            {
                //WebClient client = new WebClient();

                WebProxy webProxy = new WebProxy("ftpproxy");
                WebClient client = new WebClient();
                client.Proxy = webProxy;

                //client.Proxy.Credentials = new NetworkCredential("myusername", "mypassword");
                //client.Proxy.GetProxy(new Uri("proxy.server.com:8080"));
                string Webpage = client.DownloadString("https://www.site.com/xmlfeed/xml_prices_full.asp?code=99201&user=xxx&pass=yyy");
                using (StreamWriter sw = new StreamWriter("O:\\Data_Download\\site\\SupplierFile.txt"))
                {
                    sw.Write(Webpage);
                }
                Webpage = client.DownloadString("https://www.site.com/xmlfeed/xml_prices_full.asp?code=99221&user=zzz&pass=qqq");
                using (StreamWriter sw = new StreamWriter("O:\\Data_Download\\site\\SupplierFileMBIO.txt"))
                {
                    sw.Write(Webpage);
                }

                Environment.Exit(0);
            }
            catch (Exception ex)
            {
                using (StreamWriter sw2 = new StreamWriter("O:\\Loaders\\Global\\site\\Commodities\\Price\\Errors\\DownloadError.txt"))
                {
                    sw2.Write(ex.Message);
                    
                }
                Environment.Exit(1);
            }
        }
    }
}
