When overridden in a descendant class, gets or sets the network proxy to use to access this Internet resource.
Assembly: System (in System.dll)
Any attempt is made to get or set the property, when the property is not overridden in a descendant class.
The property identifies the network proxy that the request uses to access the Internet resource. The request is made through the proxy server rather than directly to the Internet resource.
The WebRequest class is an abstract class. The actual behavior of WebRequest instances at run time is determined by the descendant class returned by the WebRequest.Create method. For more information about default values and exceptions, see the documentation for the descendant classes, such as HttpWebRequest and FileWebRequest.
