Gets or sets proxy information used by the handler.
Assembly: System.Net.Http (in System.Net.Http.dll)
The local computer or application config file may specify that a default proxy be used. If theproperty is specified, then the proxy settings from the property override the local computer or application config file and the handler will use the proxy settings specified. If no proxy is specified in a config file and the property is unspecified, the handler uses the proxy settings inherited from Internet Explorer on the local computer. If there are no proxy settings in Internet Explorer, the request is sent directly to the server.
The HttpClientHandler class parses a proxy bypass list with wildcard characters inherited from Internet Explorer the same as the bypass list is parsed directly by Internet Explorer. For example, the HttpClientHandler class will parse a bypass list of "nt*" from Internet Explorer as a regular expression of "nt.*". So a URL of " http://nt.com" would bypass the proxy using the HttpClientHandler class and using Internet Explorer.
The HttpClientHandler class supports local proxy bypass. The class considers a destination to be local if any of the following conditions are met:
