HttpClient stops working RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • After a network change on my physical computer, System.Net.Http (both in System.Net.Http and Windows.Web.Http) stops working in UWP projects. The error is something like 'Could not connect to server'.

    I have absolutely no problem surfing the web or playing games; and, the problem only occurs on my physical computer. I even tried the classic System.Net.WebRequest, it also fails with same error. But System.Net.WebRequest works well in a plain .NET project.

    What's wrong?

  • Hello,

    Please be specific about how you used System.Net.Httpin your UWP project. And also try use Fiddler to check the error in detail. The error info should be more than just 'Could not connect to server', you may get a error code which helps us understand the reason about why it failed.

    Best regards,

  • I did "Reset Network" in Windows Settings center, now it works.
