Default proxy on windows services without app.Config RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a windows services which have to connect to Google Analytics but it's seems to not use its app.config :

        <defaultProxy useDefaultCredentials="true">
          <proxy proxyaddress="myProxyAdresse" usesystemdefault="True" />

    so how can I do the same to ensure that it can pass through the proxy?

    thanks in advance

  • How did you connect to Google Analytics? To check whether it is a specific issue to Windows Service, I suggest you try your code in Winform Application.

    For another way, I suggest you try to set proxy in code.

    //first customize the default proxy
    WebProxy wproxy = new WebProxy(“new proxy”,true); 
    wproxy.Credentials = CredentialCache.DefaultNetworkCredentials; 
    //or you can construct your own credentials via System.Net.NetworkCredential
    WebRequest.DefaultWebProxy = wproxy;
