Add Web Reference when proxy needs authentication


I have been having difficulties to add a web reference in visual studio .net 2002. The wizard is not able to download the wsdl file because I am connected through my corporate proxy server that requires authentication. It uses my default proxy configuration only to show the asmx file in the left pane, but in the right I receive an error message.

I have being using the disco.exe and wsdl.exe command line tools to create the proxy classes for the web services I must use outside our intranet, however this process is not very productive.

Has any of you ever faced a situation like this before? If so, what actions did you take to solve it?
