Description Cody Beyer (MSFT) 2015-01-16 16:41:19 UTC
### Description

Using basic username/password authentication to connect to an HTTP site fails in Mono, but does not fail in .Net. Specifically it is failing in Android.

### Code

string sResult = string.Empty;
StreamReader reader = null;
try
{
HttpWebRequest request = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(url);
request.KeepAlive = false;
request.Credentials = new NetworkCredential(UserName, Password);
request.Timeout = 300000;

WebResponse response = request.GetResponse();
reader = new StreamReader(response.GetResponseStream());
sResult = reader.ReadToEnd();
if (reader != null) reader.Close();
}
catch (Exception exc)
{
}
try { if (reader != null)reader.Close(); }
catch { }

return sResult;
