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.
