Google Service Account with Aspnet MVC Behind A Proxy

    Recently I had a fun project to attach google analytics data to an internal site which took longer complete than I thought intial thought but now I could complete in just a day. My biggest issue was finding out the issue was related to the company's proxy. Which I quickly fixed by just added the following snippet at the bottom of this article. For everything else this is just my notes and things I found to help me drill down into the queries for grabbing the data.

    Both errors I encountered were "No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it" and “requested service '…' could not be activated” the first time it's accessed".
    <defaultProxy useDefaultCredentials="true">
      <proxy proxyaddress="proxyaddress" usesystemdefault="False"/>
