  • Hi BataBo Jokviu,

    Thank you for posting here.

    For your question, you could try the code below.

    //NameSpace: System.Net
    using ( WebClient wc = new WebClient () )
      WebProxy wp = new WebProxy ( "Proxy server IP address: proxy server port" ), true );
      if (/*Proxy server does not authenticate*/)
        wp.Credentials = CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials;
        wp.Credentials = new NetworkCredential("UserName", "PassWord");
      wc.Proxy = wp; //Designated agent
      wc.Encoding = System.Text.Encoding.Default;

    Best Regards,
