JIRA Rest API connection in C#

I am trying to fetch projetcs and issue from JIRA server which is located outside from my network but I am getting Authentication error.

Prior to that, JIRA server is located on client machine an i am trying to connect with my credentials using Atlassian SDK (.Net)

Code is like this :

var jira = Jira.CreateRestClient(" JIRA Server ", "username", "password");
 var selprj = await jira.Projects.GetProjectAsync("projectname");

Error :

Response was not recognized as JSON. Content: Authentication Required

Your code is not logging into JIRA, so the response when you try to get the project list is effectively "you are not logged in".

You'll need to debug the previous line that tries to create a connection object, as it's not working.

Thank you Nic for you response.

Could you help me to establish connection?

When I tried with same line with my local server it works fine, It will help me  if you post some example about connections...

Sorry, I was totally unclear in my first line.  It looks to me like your JIRA server is behind a proxy that is demanding authentication before you get to JIRA.

You'll need to code for that as well as the JIRA connection.

could you have simple example to call JIRA REST API through C#.NET

I've not used C# for years and don't have one to hand.  There's mention of the starting point though at https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Bitbucket-discussions/How-can-I-use-JIRA-Rest-API-in-C-net/m-p/628365#M122
