// Create an empty instance of the NetworkCredential class.
NetworkCredential myCredentials = new NetworkCredential("","","");
myCredentials.Domain = domain;
myCredentials.UserName = username;
myCredentials.Password = passwd;

// Create a WebRequest with the specified URL. 
WebRequest myWebRequest = WebRequest.Create(url); 
myWebRequest.Credentials = myCredentials;
Console.WriteLine("\n\nUser Credentials:- Domain : {0} , UserName : {1} , Password : {2}",myCredentials.Domain,myCredentials.UserName,myCredentials.Password);

// Send the request and wait for a response.
Console.WriteLine("\n\nRequest to Url is sent.Waiting for response...Please wait ...");
WebResponse myWebResponse = myWebRequest.GetResponse();

// Process the response.
Console.WriteLine("\nResponse received sucessfully");
