[Mono-dev] Environment.GetEnvironmentVariable() not working in Linux ASP.NET app

Hi Robert,

I am using XSP2 & MonoDevelop to debug.

Based on the answers I think that it might be a Linux related issue.

I have implemented extensive proxy support for WebClient and it's underlying classes in Mono/master. This code is based on the no_proxy environment variable in Linux. The question is, how can we obtain the list of proxies to bypass in Linux? Is there a consistend way to do this for standard Linux apps AND Linux ASP.NET apps?

Best regards,
