    Hi - I was able to configure Fiddler in such a way that all the http server requests made from my mobile phone are captured as long as both the mobile phone and Fiddler are on the same Wi-Fi. Now, I am wondering if there is a way to see the same http request when the phone is connected to Internet via 3g or 4G. Is it possible? can anyone share the steps to do that?
    Thanks.

    Hello, Bil--

    Generally, mobile devices won't use the registered proxy server when on 3G or 4G (if they did, all you'd need to do is run Fiddler on an internet-accessible IP address).

    That typically means you can't use Fiddler in the configuration you describe, unless your scenario is narrow enough that you could configure it as a reverse proxy for a specific target: http://docs.telerik.com/fiddler/configure-fiddler/tasks/usefiddlerasreverseproxy

    Hi guys

    Are there no alternative methods available (without root access to phone) ?

    I'm not aware of any phones that support setting a proxy for the 4G connection without root access.
