WebProxy.BypassProxyOnLocal Property

 

Gets or sets a value that indicates whether to bypass the proxy server for local addresses.

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

public bool BypassProxyOnLocal { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true to bypass the proxy server for local addresses; otherwise, false. The default value is false.

The setting of the BypassProxyOnLocal property determines whether WebRequest instances use the proxy server when accessing local Internet resources.

If BypassProxyOnLocal is true, requests to local Internet resources do not use the proxy server. Local requests are identified by the lack of a period (.) in the URI, as in http://webserver/, or access the local server, including http://localhost, http://loopback, or http://127.0.0.1. When BypassProxyOnLocal is false, all Internet requests are made through the proxy server.

System_CAPS_noteNote

Requests to a local host with a URI that contain a period use the proxy. To avoid using a proxy in these cases, create an entry for the host in the BypassList.

The following code example demonstrates calling a constructor that sets this property and getting the value of this property.

public static WebProxy CreateProxyWithHostAddress(bool bypassLocal)
{
    WebProxy proxy =  new WebProxy("http://contoso", bypassLocal);
    Console.WriteLine("Bypass proxy for local URIs?: {0}", 
       proxy.BypassProxyOnLocal);
    return proxy;
}
