HttpTransportBindingElement.BypassProxyOnLocal Property

Gets or sets a value that indicates whether proxies are ignored for local addresses.

Namespace:  System.ServiceModel.Channels
Assembly:  System.ServiceModel (in System.ServiceModel.dll)

public bool BypassProxyOnLocal { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if proxies are ignored for local addresses; otherwise, false. The default is false.

A local address is one that is on the local LAN or intranet.

WCF always ignores the proxy if the service address begins with http://localhost. You should use the host name (rather than localhost) if you want clients to go through a proxy when talking to services on the same machine.

The following example sets this property to use when performing requests on the binding.


HttpTransportBindingElement httpBinding = new HttpTransportBindingElement();
httpBinding.BypassProxyOnLocal = true;
