Gateway

The Gateway submenu provide options to easily configure how Fiddler Everywhere accesses the network. By default, Fiddler Everywhere "chains" to the system's default proxy. These settings allows you to overwrite that behavior.

There are three select options in the submenu:

  • Use system proxy (recommended) (default value)
  • Manual proxy configuration
  • No proxy

Use system proxy

  • Use system proxy (recommended) is the default selection. Fiddler uses the OS system proxy. Some browsers and many applications use the system proxy by default and re notified when it changes.

Example manual proxy configuration

Manual proxy configuration

Select Manual proxy configuration to specify the upstream proxy string (first textbox) and proxy bypass list (second textbox).

  • Proxy configuration string

The proxy configuration string could be directly set the gateway proxy:

proxyserver:8080

or the protocol-specific form

http=httpproxy:8080;https=httpsproxy:8080
  • Bypass list

The proxy bypass list supports wildcards and the special tokens <local> (meaning any hostname which does not contain a period) and <-loopback> which removes the default bypass for 127.0.0.1 and localhost host-names.

<local>;*.extranet.example.com;

Example manual proxy configuration

No proxy

Select No proxy if you want to send all traffic directly to the origin server.
