In this article we will discuss Fiddler, will make brief discussion on Fiddler, In last article we discuss about WinDump.
Fiddler is an HTTP debugging proxy server application originally written by Eric Lawrence, formerly a program manager on the Internet Explorer development team at Microsoft.
The Fiddler tool helps you debug web applications by capturing network traffic between the Internet and test computers. The tool enables you to inspect incoming and outgoing data to monitor and modify requests and responses before the browser receives them.
Wireshark, Firebug, Fiddler all do similar things – capture network traffic. Wireshark captures any kind of network packet. Fiddler works as an HTTP/HTTPS proxy. It captures every HTTP request the computer makes and records everything associated with it.
Go to your device’s network settings, and enable a proxy. For server, enter the IP Address from Fiddler. For port, enter “8888” (or whatever is in the Fiddler Options -> Connections menu.) You should see a “Fiddler Echo Service” page.
