See more: C# WebService proxy
This is the c# code which i use to bypass proxy to access the webservice since my system is using proxy. iam using VS 2010 and using the webservice in my windows application.
WebRequest.DefaultWebProxy = new WebProxy("http://IN02S10004:80/", true);

But still i get the error as follows.
system.invalidoperationexception client found response content type of text/html but expected 'text/xml'
also tried with the following code in app.config also
      <proxy usesystemdefault="false"
        <add address=""/>

Solution 1

Perhaps you need to login to the proxy?
WebProxy provides a constructor that takes credentials for Proxies[^]
Best bet is have a look at the HTML you're getting back instead of XML - it probably has some info in it

there is no credentials and the webservice which i use is a free one.

I strongly suspect there is an issue with web service. The issue may not be with consuming web service. Try to access web service from outside your application.
please refer the following URLs[^][^]
client found response content type of text/html charset=utf-8 but expected text/xml[^][^]
