Proxy authentication...

Proxy authentication...

Hi guys!

.NET noobie here, I'm afraid.

We have for many years been running a Visual FoxPro application that used the Microsoft SOAP toolkit to access a web service. This toolkit no longer works on our Windows 2003/2008 servers, so I have been asked to create a .NET (COM) solution to replace it. I have followed a tutorial and have managed to create a working COM solution, but any call to a method of the web service is returned with an error of "Proxy authentication is required".

This is where I am stuck! What do I need to do to specify the Proxy credentials? I have tried adding useDefaultCredentials="true" to the app.config file, but that doesn't work (unless I am doing it wrong!).

I can post code if required but am hoping there is an obvious solution out there :)

Many thanks

I like work. It fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours...
