Original Solution Post 
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/20336826/httpwebrequest-cannot-connect-through-proxy

A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond IP Address:80
Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

Exception Details: System.Net.Sockets.SocketException: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond IP ADDRESS:80


After quick review of my code i found the issue that my local enviroment is using ISA proxy server and that the main issue that the local intranet environment is throwing following error

Once i do the research i found the above post as a solution with quick hint

1) Add the following lines in your code 
HttpWebRequest req = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create("http://www.websiteurl.com");

// This is a problem that the code did not use the proxy
req.Proxy = new WebProxy("[Your Proxy Server Name]", 8080);
req.Proxy.Credentials = new NetworkCredential("User Name", "Password");

Here is the complete code 

using System;
using System.Data;
using System.Configuration;
using System.Collections;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.Security;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts;
using System.Web.UI.HtmlControls;
using System.Net;
using System.IO;
public partial class _SendSMS : System.Web.UI.Page
{

    private void InitializeComponent()
    {

        this.Load += new System.EventHandler(this.Page_Load);

    }

    private void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
       
       SendMessage(username, password, message, sender, number);
    }

public string SendMessage(string username, string password, string msg, string sender, string numbers)
    {
HttpWebRequest req = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create("http://www.websiteurl.com");
        

        
        req.Method = "POST";
        
        req.ContentType = "application/x-www-form-urlencoded";
    req.Proxy = new WebProxy("[Your Proxy Server Name]", 8080);
req.Proxy.Credentials = new NetworkCredential("User Name", "Password");
        
        string postData = "mobile=" + username + "&password=" + password + "&numbers=" + numbers + "&sender=" + sender + "&msg=" + ConvertToUnicode(msg) + "&applicationType=24";
        req.ContentLength = postData.Length;

        StreamWriter stOut = new
        StreamWriter(req.GetRequestStream(),
        System.Text.Encoding.ASCII);
        stOut.Write(postData);
        stOut.Close();
        // Do the request to get the response
        string strResponse;
        StreamReader stIn = new StreamReader(req.GetResponse().GetResponseStream());
        strResponse = stIn.ReadToEnd();
        stIn.Close();
        return strResponse;
    }


I hope it save your time

Calling LoadLibraryEx on ISAPI filter “C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\aspnet_filter.dll” failed

Dear Readers
if you get the error

Calling LoadLibraryEx on ISAPI filter “C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\aspnet_filter.dll” failed


Here is the solution 
Get a command prompt in administrator mode and go to C:\Windows\Microsoft .NET\FrameWork64\v4.xxx
and run aspnet_regiis -r. This will re-register the right libraries. It has happened twice already to me.
For other frameworks (32 bit or other versions of .net make sure you go to the correct folder (i.e. Framework/v2.xxx, etc.)

xxxx is the the number which is present with the folder name so i suggest you guys to check the folder name in your directory

If "run aspnet_regiis -r" is not working and if you get the error run is not recognized command then just type " aspnet_regiis -r" it will run fine

Reason of problem
Your asp.net frame work has been change may be you have install the lower version on the higher version or may be because of any reason you have register another version in your IIS, in my cas…
