FileWebRequest.Credentials Property

Gets or sets the credentials that are associated with this request. This property is reserved for future use.

Namespace:  System.Net
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

abstract Credentials : ICredentials with get, set 
override Credentials : ICredentials with get, set

Property Value

Type: System.Net.ICredentials
An ICredentials that contains the authentication credentials that are associated with this request. The default is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

Because the FileWebRequest class does not authenticate requests for files from the local file system, it ignores the contents, if any, of the Credentials property. Authentication for FileWebRequest is handled by the access control lists for the file resource in the underlying file system.
