Configure the Fiddler Classic Server. The Fiddler Server is the machine on which Fiddler Classic is installed. Some scenarios may require specific steps for Fiddler Classic to receive and send web traffic. This includes:
- Types of traffic, like decrypting HTTPS and authenticating with channel-binding tokens
- Operating systems, like Windows 8, Windows 10, Windows 11 and Mac OSX
- Network configurations, like monitoring a remote machine, chaining to an upstream proxy, using Fiddler Classic as a Reverse Proxy, monitoring local traffic or monitoring dial-up and VPN connections
Configure the Client. The client is the source of the web traffic that Fiddler Classic monitors. Some client applications, operating systems, and devices may require specific steps to send and receive traffic to and from Fiddler. This includes:
- Browsers, like Firefox, Opera, or IE (when sending traffic to localhost)
- Applications, like .NET apps, WinHTTP Apps, Java Apps, and PHP/cURL apps
- Devices, like Android, iOS, Windows Phone 7, and PocketPC devices.
