Getting NETMassDownloader to work behind proxy

Posted on February 11, 2008. Filed under: Uncategorized |

After struggling for few minutes, I added code to NETMassDownloader to provide proxy credentials.


Download NETMassDownloader source from CodePlex. Open the solution in Visual Studio.

In DownloadLibrary project open PDBWebClient.cs. In the constructor add the following code:

  public PDBWebClient()




  base.Proxy = new System.Net.WebProxy(new Uri("webproxyUri"));

  base.Proxy.Credentials = new System.Net.NetworkCredential("username", "password", "domain");

 } Build the solution and run it. It should work without hitches.    

Updated (18-2-2008): Kerem has made v 1.2 available. This takes proxy details as parameter. You can download it here. Thanks Kerem.
