Code to use the default proxy settings

IWebProxy defaultWebProxy = WebRequest.DefaultWebProxy;
defaultWebProxy.Credentials = CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials;
client = new WebClient { Proxy = defaultWebProxy };
string downloadString = client.DownloadString("www.google.com");

or

WebClient client = new WebClient();
WebProxy wp = new WebProxy(" proxy server url here");
client.Proxy = wp;
string str = client.DownloadString("http://www.google.com");

If you need to set an account use this

using (WebClient webClient = new WebClient())
{
	webClient.Encoding = encoding;
	NetworkCredential netcredit = new NetworkCredential("MyNetworkUserID", "MyNetworkPassword", "corp");
	webClient.Credentials = netcredit;
	webClient.Proxy = new System.Net.WebProxy()
	{
		Credentials = new System.Net.NetworkCredential("MyNetworkUserID", "MyNetworkPassword", "corp")
	};
	// webClient.Proxy = null;//if I don't give webClient.Proxy-it returns Error "407-ProxyAuthentication Required!"
	result = webClient.DownloadString(url);
	  // result = webClient.DownloadString("http://www.google.com/");//just to check with google itself,still the same error

Using Fiddler with Internet Explorer error: The Proxy Server Isn’t Responding

When I got this error when trying to capture HTTP traffic in IE AND using a Proxy server, I kept on getting this error:

The Proxy Server Isn’t Responding

But this was resolved by uninstalling Fiddler and reinstalling it.
