Can a client application built using LabVIEW access a web page when it is behind a proxy server.

Hi All,

I am designing a LabVIEW client application that could reside/or not behind a proxy server. One part of the LabVIEW application will be making a call to a web page and returning XML. What effect will being behind a proxy server have on the app? Has anyone done anything similar to this and ran into any problems? Is there a way to make the call go to the proxy server first using a VI in the Internet toolkit?

BTW we are using LabVIEW 7.1 on Windows 2000 machine.

Any type of input or experience doing this, or even just pointing me in a certain direction would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Jim

The Internet Toolkit functions have no specific proxy server
functionality. Basically what you do when accessing a web page through a
proxy server is sending the HTTP request to the proxy server and the
actual URL in the HTTP stream is a fully qualified URL such as
www.domain.com:/dir/path_to_file.htm
