Using Data Explorer behind a proxy - solution

    General discussion

  • Hi,

    I was having trouble getting through our corporate proxy using Data Explorer.   I found a solution that involves creating a file in the bin folder for Data Explorer named:

    Microsoft.Mashup.Container.exe.config

    In this file copy the text

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
    <configuration>
      <system.net>
        <defaultProxy useDefaultCredentials="true">
          <proxy usesystemdefault="true"/>
        </defaultProxy>
      </system.net>
    </configuration>

    I used this solution in an old VBA piece of code that consumed a web service.   Glad the same solution works here.  The key is to name the file the same as the exe file that kicks off the process that makes the http call.

    Hope this is useful for others that are running into this problem.
