    I am trying to access a web site using below snippet

    HttpWebRequest httpWebRequest = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(url);

    HttpWebResponse webResponse = (HttpWebResponse)httpWebRequest.GetResponse();

    This is occuring for particular web site and rest of the web site working fine. 


     The remote server returned an error: (500) Internal Server Error. at System.Net.HttpWebRequest.GetResponse() -532459699... 

    Also, i tried with below options

    1. Adding Credential like

    NetworkCredential networkCredential = new NetworkCredential("user name", "pwd", "domain");

    httpWebRequest.Credentials = networkCredential;

    2. Adding below User Agent. 

    httpWebRequest.UserAgent = "Mozilla/5.0+";

    When i try to access the URL from IE, its working fine. Please help me.

    Thanks for your reply.

    How do we set the proxy in the code and any reason for setting proxy since the same url is working in normal IE.

    I think, proxy is not an issue. I tried, getting unable to resolve remote server error. Any other solution please.
