Gets or sets the global HTTP proxy.
Assemblies: System (in System.dll)
System.Net.Requests (in System.Net.Requests.dll)
The property gets or sets the global proxy. The property determines the default proxy that all WebRequest instances use if the request supports proxies and no proxy is set explicitly using the Proxy property. Proxies are currently supported by FtpWebRequest and HttpWebRequest.
The property reads proxy settings from the app.config file. If there is no config file, the current user's Internet Explorer (IE) proxy settings are used.
