Use the XMLHTTP object.

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. set obj = server.createObject("msxml2.serverxmlhttp")
  2. obj.setProxyCredentials "username", "password"
  3. "GET", "URL", false
  4. obj.send ""
  6. response.write obj.responseText

Hi Nicodemas

what about the proxy server address?

I'm not sure I understand your question. What about it? If all external traffic from the web server exits your intranet through the proxy, then why would you need to explicitly state the proxy address?

Because the proxy has to be manually entered into the browsers. if you dont set it it wont detect unless you set the browser to auto detect.

the corporation routes all their internet traffic to a central place like over 1500miles away.

trying to set a way so that when people go to the page they wont need to be asked for their username and password to get the external data

I suspect its a server configuration. Please ask that question on the Windows Forum, as it does not apply to this programming forum.

ASP code cannot control network topography or routing.
