There's a client server application. Client - .NET 2.0 based desktop application. Server - ASP .NET 2.0 based web application.
The client communicates with the server using normal HTTP requests, since the server is essentially a website hosted on a web server.
This solution is primarily for intranets - i.e. the web application is hosted on one of the internal servers in the network.
In this architecture, does the client need to be built to manage proxy settings?
Since the web server is inside the LAN, under this situation, is access to an internal web server also configured through proxies? Or are proxies strictly for all Internet calls from machines in the intranet?
