    Hi all

    I'm looking for an HTTP sniffer that can intercept & log HTTP request/response headers and content and can work with ANY application. All of the programs I tried so far can only work with browsers.

    Thanks, it does indeed work but it's too complicated, I was looking for something simpler. I just want HTTP headers and contents like what Live HTTP Headers does for Firefox, or could you tell me how I can configure Wireshark to just show that info?

    Check the online guides; they will help you to get started in no time. Especially the videos Introduction To Wireshark and Custom Wireshark Shortcuts.

    At your case follow the guide "Custom Wireshark Shortcuts" to create a new shortcut and at the end add the filter for http:
    -f "tcp.port == 80"

    My favorite is http://www.httpdebugger.com

    The only downside is it's not free, and their support is fairly lackluster however i doubt you will need support for the actual product.

    Wireshark is cool. 2 or 3 videos later I captured some packets. What do you think?
    This was with no activity on my part, no surfing, just connected.
    This appears couple times a second.
    Their is a lot of information available in a single packet.

    Thanks both of you. httpdebugger, fiddler, charles proxy ... are all good but they only work with browsers and few other apps.



    Thanks, the videos were very informative, it seems to be exactly what I need, I just need to spend more time with it to figure things out.
