Gets or sets a value that indicates whether to bypass the proxy server for local addresses.
Assembly: System (in System.dll)
The setting of the property determines whether WebRequest instances use the proxy server when accessing local Internet resources.
If is true, requests to local Internet resources do not use the proxy server. Local requests are identified by the lack of a period (.) in the URI, as in http://webserver/, or access the local server, including http://localhost, http://loopback, or http://127.0.0.1. When is false, all Internet requests are made through the proxy server.
Requests to a local host with a URI that contain a period use the proxy. To avoid using a proxy in these cases, create an entry for the host in the BypassList.
