RSS Viewer proxy problem

When you try to use the RSS Viewer webpart that is provided OOTB with MOSS, you will have problems using it if theres a proxy in the way of your access to the web.
But, there is hope . . .
You will have to work a bit on your site Web.Config file, but it is worth it.

So, the solution:

In your sites web.config add the following information.

“<identity impersonate=”true” userName=”Domain\UserName” password=”Password” />”


”  <>
  <defaultProxy useDefaultCredentials=”true” enabled=”true”>
 <proxy usesystemdefault=”true” proxyaddress=http://proxyaddress:port bypassonlocal=”true” />

and that’s it, it should get you going to overcome those annoying proxy errors.
