In my previous blog about the same topic we talked about webproxy authentication in WCF client using configuration file changes.
But the same can be solved programmatically.I’m going to discuss the same here.Its pretty simple & straight forward!
In the code where you initialise you application much before any WCF service calls are made, insert the following piece of code
WebProxy wproxy = new WebProxy(“http://<proxy address>:<proxy port>”, true,null,new NetworkCredential(“<user name>”, “<user password>”,”<domain>”));
WebRequest.DefaultWebProxy = wproxy;
The WCF runtime will acquire proxy setting from WebRequest.DefaultWebProxy property if the <system.net> and WCF <binding> remains useDefaultproxy as “true”.
Then you are done!
