C# WebResponse Problem

4 New Member
Well I have a multi-threaded program which downloads URL sources from the web. Im doing this multiple times at once. The only problem I see is that sometimes it takes a while to download the source
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. WebResponse ServerResponse = webrequest.GetResponse();
and only one webresponse can happen at once because the rest of the threads seem to wait on the first webresponse to finish. Is there a way around this? I hope you understand what my problem is.

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. public static void run() {
  3. string reply = "";
  4. string link = ("http://www.google.com");
  5. WebRequest webrequest = WebRequest.Create(link);
  7.             try
  8.             {
  9.                 WebResponse ServerResponse = webrequest.GetResponse();
  10.                 StreamReader streamreader = new  StreamReader(ServerResponse.GetResponseStream());
  11.                 reply = streamreader.ReadToEnd();
  13.                 ServerResponse.Close();
  14.                 streamreader.Close();
  15.             }
  16.             catch (Exception e)
  17.             {
  18.                 MessageBox.Show(e.Message);
  19.             }
  20. }

I don't know why it would wait, unless you're using the same object/same thread.

Have you tried using the HttpWebRequest? It might provide better functionality for you.

Could it be something to do with the way im doing the threads? Im new to C# .
I'm starting the threads similar to this:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  2. Thread[] ThreadArray = new Thread[5];
  4.                for (int i = 0; i < 5; i++)
  5.                 {
  6.                   ThreadArray[i] = new Thread(delegate() { runme(URL, timeout); });
  7.                   ThreadArray[i].Start();
  8.                 }

Hello everyone, I have read through the newsgroups (thank God for 'em!) extensively looking for an example of how to pass a file (PDF) from a webresponse stream down to a web client. Here's the scenario - when the web browser requests a file, the IIS Server1 has to go back to Server2 to make a request for the file. Server2 then responds the file back to Server1 and Server1 should be able to just forward the file down to the web browser....
