    on linux you configure the httpclient proxy via environment variables:




    note: if the proxy uses ntlm (windows auth) its not supported on linux

    Thank you very much for the reply.

    My requirement as below:

    I created an application using dotnet core 3.1 in linux environment.

    In this application I generated the SOAP reference using dotnet svcutil tool.

    using the soapcore i am calling the soap service.

    When I make a SOAP request without proxy it works as expected.

    When I make a SOAP request with proxy (set in ubuntu machine) it does not going through proxy.

    I want to set proxy details like proxy ip, port number, username, password.

    I am not able to set, please help me with code snippet.

    Thank you very much.

    what part of setting the environment variables did you not understand? the username, password and proxy ipaddress are all there. standard linux url format.

    if using bash or z-shell:

       export HTTP_PROXY="http://username:password@proxy:port"
       export HTTPS_PROXY="https://username:password@proxy:port"
       dotnet myapp.dll

    Thank you very much Mr.bruce,

    The above approach I tried but no luck.

    I can explain with code. I am tring with below code snippet.

    From my dotnet core application making SOAP request to the SOAP service in linux. 

    app1 : dotnet core app (which makes the SOAP request) - PC 1 (ubuntu 20.04 envt)

    app2: asp.net app SOAP service running - PC 2 (windows envt)

    app3: proxy server - PC3 (windows envt)

    If I enable proxy, the SOAP calls are not going thru proxy.

    Please help me.

    It works with below authentication schema.

    httpElement.ProxyAuthenticationScheme = AuthenticationSchemes.Basic;

    but not working with other than authentication schema basic.

    var binding = new BasicHttpBinding();
    binding.Security.Mode = BasicHttpSecurityMode.TransportCredentialOnly;
    binding.Security.Transport.ClientCredentialType = HttpClientCredentialType.Basic;
    //Wrap binding custombinding to route request through proxy with credential authentication
    var customBinding = new CustomBinding(binding);
    var httpElement = customBinding.Elements.Find<HttpTransportBindingElement>();
    httpElement.ProxyAddress = new Uri("http://<proxyIP>:<proxyPort>");
    httpElement.ProxyAuthenticationScheme = AuthenticationSchemes.Basic;
    httpElement.UseDefaultWebProxy = false;
    using (var webClient = new TransparencyPlatformClient(customBinding, FinalEndpoint)
    	webClient.ClientCredentials.ServiceCertificate.SslCertificateAuthentication =
            new X509ServiceCertificateAuthentication()
                CertificateValidationMode = X509CertificateValidationMode.None,
                RevocationMode = System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates.X509RevocationMode.NoCheck
    	webClient.ClientCredentials.UserName.UserName = ProxyUserName;
    	webClient.ClientCredentials.UserName.Password = ProxyPassword;
