Hello, I'm making a application to use in college to retrieve my calendar and other things in VB.NET. But my college uses a proxy so when I connect my laptop I need to change the internet settings in my web browser to view web pages.

Can anyone help me by telling me how I would send requests via a proxy server in VB.NET? Or is there a piece of software that I can download which tunnels all connections or is there a setting in win7 does this?

In Internet Explorer. Go to Internet Options->Connections->Lan settings.
If you enable "Automatically detect settings", you should no longer have to manually configure the proxy settings for each environment.
When you laptop is behind a proxy, those settings should be detected and your browser configured accordingly.

If that doesn't work, perhaps this might be of use.
