Property Value


true to bypass the proxy server for local addresses; otherwise, false. The default value is false.


An Internet resource is local if it has a local address. A local address is one that is on same computer, the local LAN or intranet, and is identified, syntactically, by the lack of a period (.), as in the URIs http://webserver/ and http://localhost/.

Setting the BypassProxyOnLocal property determines whether endpoints configured with the WebHttpBinding use the proxy server when accessing local resources.

If BypassProxyOnLocal is true, requests to local Internet resources do not use the proxy server. When BypassProxyOnLocal is false, all Internet requests are made through the proxy server.
