Easy Auto Proxy in C# using app.config
One of the feature requests that I got for the next version of RipShout was proxy support for people tuning in at work. I didn’t want to bog the app (which I intended to be very slim) down with a config window and permanent storage. As is often the case, the answer presented itself with a simple app.config setting to automatically utilize the default proxy settings on the box. Neato burrito.
<system.net> <defaultProxy> <proxy usesystemdefault="true" /> </defaultProxy> </system.net>
