Proxy Authentication

Occasional Visitor

Hi, I am trying to create a PowerShell script to get my proxy ip from ipify.org and save it to a file

 

I have used their sample code but get the error, 407 Proxy Authentication Required

 

 

 

 

$ip = Invoke-RestMethod -Uri 'https://api.ipify.org?format=json'
"My public IP address is: $($ip.ip)"

 

 

 

 

  

I have looked for ways to do this and found this;

 

 

 

 

$Wcl=New-Object System.Net.WebClient
$Creds=Get-Credential
$Wcl.Proxy.Credentials=$Creds

 

 

 

 

 

However this pops up a credential window and lets  me manually enter the username and password. I don't really want this, I would like the username and password typed into the script.

 

For example;

 

 

 

 

$ip = Invoke-RestMethod -Uri 'https://USERNAME:PASSWORD@api.ipify.org?format=json'

 

 

 

 

 

I know this is not the correct syntax as it gives me an error. 

 

I have my proxy server setup in the Windows 10 settings and it all works

 

Can someone tell me if this is possible and what the correct syntax is?

 

Thanks,

jonny

    return Invoke-RestMethod -Uri $server$url -ContentType $contentType -Headers $headers -Method $method -UseDefaultCredentials -Proxy $proxyUri -ProxyUseDefaultCredentials
