Hello all,

I have found your forums very helpful, but now I have a question it seems has not been encountered (or I can't find it). I have a client that attaches itself to a webservice on startup. This client looks for a proxy error and launches a proxy dialog to garner information from the user. I then pass this info using the proxy object, but I cannot seem to get past the proxy server when it is using digest authentication. Here is a sample of the code I am using:


WebProxy proxyObject = new WebProxy();
proxyObject = WebProxy.GetDefaultProxy();
NetworkCredential myCred = new NetworkCredential(p.username,p.password,p.domain);
proxyObject.Credentials = myCred;
GlobalProxySelection.Select = proxyObject;


This code works fine for both Integrated and Basic Authentication. Anyone know what's up? I would be extremely appreciative of your help.
