    System.Net.WebException: The remote server returned an error: (404) Not Found.


    I am trying to get a response from a URL using the HttpWebRequest
    object. this is my code below.
    httpRequest = (HttpWebRequest) WebRequest.Create(myurl);
    httpRequest.Method = "GET";
    httpRequest.Timeout = 90000;
    httpResponse = httpRequest.GetResponse();

    Before it was working fine. Then suddenly we got an error. This is the
    details of the error I got. The url exists coz we are able to access it
    using a regular browser.

    What changed between when it worked and when it stopped working? Did you install any new software, such as a firewall? Did you change the network settings on the PC?

    It worked fine in our environment. But in our clients, it didnt work. We asked them if they did some updates or anything but they said they didnt do anything. So now we are like shooting in the dark. What do you think are the possible causes of this problem? We are thinking about proxy or firewall but they say they are no updates related to that or anything. Basically they didnt do anything and suddenly our application doesnt work.
