The underlying connection was closed: Unable to connect to the remote server

I am writing a valid link checker but get an error of

"The underlying connection was closed: Unable to connect to the remote server"
It seems to only happen if there is a www in the link.
What is the best way to approach this


Dim httpReq As HttpWebRequest = CType(WebRequest.Create(strLinkURL), HttpWebRequest)
httpReq.AllowAutoRedirect = False
httpReq.Proxy = System.Net.GlobalProxySelection.GetEmptyWebProxy()
httpReq.Credentials = CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials
Dim httpRes As HttpWebResponse = CType(httpReq.GetResponse(), HttpWebResponse)
If httpRes.StatusCode = HttpStatusCode.OK Then
response.write("Good link")
End If
' httpRes.Close()

Catch UriFormat As UriFormatException
strError = Err.Description
UpdateListOfInvalidLinks(intLinkID, drlinks.Item("RegionID"), drlinks.Item("RegionName"), strLinkName, strLinkURL, strError)
Catch webExcp As WebException
strError = Err.Description
UpdateListOfInvalidLinks(intLinkID, drlinks.Item("RegionID"), drlinks.Item("RegionName"), strLinkName, strLinkURL, strError)
End Try

I found a few suggestions of things to try such as: modifying machine.config file to include the address of the proxy like so: <proxy usesystemdefault="f...

underlying connection was closed:unable to connect to remote server
I have been receiving this exception for over a week with a .NET remoting app and can't find a solution anywhere that works.  Below I'll paste my config files and the client code calling the remote method.  I'd really appreciate some assistance. The Server code and files are on a remote server within our facility and have been told more than once there is no firewall between my workstation and it.  So firewalls are out of the question as the source of the problem.  I assume its somewhere in my config files but I've tried everything I've seen on the net. I receive the Net...

Web Service: The underlying connection was closed: Unable to connect to the remote server.
When I access the web service when I'm on the LAN at work everything functions fine. When I try and access the service from outside the firewall, I get the error. I'm not using a proxy server, I can access the VS.NET generated interface page just fine from outside the firewall as well. On the web server the hosts the web service I have port 80 and 443 open. What else do I need to do w/ the firewall, client app or the service to get it to work? If you could tell me of additional ports, or anything I need to do it would be appreciated. Thanks...
