IWebProxy.IsBypassed Method

Indicates that the proxy should not be used for the specified host.

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

bool IsBypassed (
	Uri^ host
boolean IsBypassed (
	Uri host
function IsBypassed (
	host : Uri
) : boolean



The Uri of the host to check for proxy use.

Return Value

true if the proxy server should not be used for host; otherwise, false.

The IsBypassed method indicates whether to use the proxy server to access the host that is specified in the host parameter. If IsBypassed is true, the proxy is not used to contact the host and the request is passed directly to the server.

The following example uses the IsBypassed property to determine whether the proxy server should be used for the specified host.

WebProxy_Interface^ webProxy_Interface = gcnew WebProxy_Interface( gcnew Uri( "" ) );

webProxy_Interface->Credentials = gcnew NetworkCredential( "microsoft",".Net" );

Console::WriteLine( "The web proxy is : {0}", webProxy_Interface->GetProxy( gcnew Uri( "" ) ) );

// Check if the webproxy can ne bypassed for the site S"".
if ( webProxy_Interface->IsBypassed( gcnew Uri( "" ) ) )
   Console::WriteLine( "Web Proxy is by passed" );
   Console::WriteLine( "Web Proxy is not by passed" );

WebProxyInterface webProxyInterface = new WebProxyInterface(
    new Uri(""));
webProxyInterface.set_Credentials(new NetworkCredential(
    "microsoft", ".Net"));
Console.WriteLine("The web proxy is : {0}", webProxyInterface.
    GetProxy(new Uri("")));

// Check if the webproxy can ne bypassed for the site 
if (webProxyInterface.IsBypassed(new Uri(
    ""))) {
    Console.WriteLine("Web Proxy is by passed");
else {
    Console.WriteLine("Web Proxy is not by passed");
