407 Proxy error while creating container in Azure Storage

I’m trying to create azure storage using follwing simple code.

Tried manually for cross check working fine manually.

static void Main(string[] args)
    //Parse the connection string and return a reference to the storage account.
    CloudStorageAccount storageAccount = CloudStorageAccount.Parse(CloudConfigurationManager.GetSetting("StorageConnectionString"));

    //Create the blob client object.
    CloudBlobClient blobClient = storageAccount.CreateCloudBlobClient();

    //Get a reference to a container to use for the sample code, and create it if it does not exist.
    CloudBlobContainer container = blobClient.GetContainerReference("sascontainer");

getting error :

An unhandled exception of type ‘Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Storage.StorageException’ occurred in Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Storage.dll Additional information: The remote server returned an error: (407) Proxy Authentication Required.


    <add key="StorageConnectionString" value="DefaultEndpointsProtocol=https;AccountName=ashuthinks;AccountKey=MYKEY"/>

   <defaultProxy enabled="true" useDefaultCredentials="true">
