                WebClient client = new WebClient();
                req.ContentType ="application/json; charset=utf-8";
               // req.UseDefaultCredentials = true;
               // req.PreAuthenticate = true;
               // req.Credentials = CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials;


                req.Credentials = new NetworkCredential("xxx", "xxx111");
                   req.Headers.Add("Authorization","Bearer  Y2xpdmUuaG9sZGVuQHN0b25laGFyZHkuY28udWs6bDBnMTV0MWM1");
