As the BASS_CONFIG_NET_PROXY and BASS_CONFIG_NET_AGENT options take a pointer to an ANSI string as an argument (unless you add the BASS_UNICODE flag). Alternatively you might also use the BASS_SetConfigString(BASSConfig, String) method, which always supports unicode.

The following example copies the contents of a managed String into unmanaged memory:

// create an unmanaged pointer containing a copy of the string
IntPtr myUserAgentPtr = Marshal.StringToHGlobalAnsi("radio42");
Bass.BASS_SetConfigPtr(BASSConfig.BASS_CONFIG_NET_AGENT, myUserAgentPtr);
// make sure to free the myUserAgentPtr!
If you need to dynamically change the BASS_CONFIG_NET_PROXY or BASS_CONFIG_NET_AGENT option, you will need to call BASS_SetConfig(BASSConfig, Int32) each time again!
