Hi all,

I'm new to the .NET Flickr API and just trying my first example as described in the documentation. I created a Flickr instance with my API KEY then created a PhotoSearchOptions instance, and finally called the PhotosSearch() function.

An undefined exception is returned by PhotosSearch(). After checking with a network analyzer I noticed that the Flickr .NET library is trying to initiate a TCP connection with an unknown address in my PC network configuration (, or to what the Flickr .NET library thinks a proxy server.

Unfortunately, there is no proxy in my network configuration and my DSL modem is in NAT operation mode.

Any help or solution is most appreciated,

Found the source of the above problem.

IE on my PC is configured with a proxy server with IP Although my default browser on my PC is Mozilla Firefox and is not configured with a proxy server, the Flickr .NET library seems to set the network connectivity settings to those of IE.

Yes, it does default the the IE proxy - I had assumed you'd checked that :)
