    Hello, I am using Fiddler and have a filter set to capture sessions. I have not used it in a few weeks and when i went on today, it is not capturing anything. I have checked all my settings Capture traffic is enabled, i went through all the options and it is not recording anything. i tried it on ie and on firefox and its not working on either.

    Hey Eric,

    I forgot to mention that I am trying to capture sessions using Google Chrome and IE 8,.
    It was working fine up until a few days ago. Not capturing any session. Also It is not working with FireFox either. Please let me know when you get a chance. thank you

    Hi,

    The fact that visiting http://ipv4.fiddler:8888/ shows an error message but the direct IP does not means that Fiddler is listening but your proxy settings are not pointed at Fiddler.

    I assume you see "Capturing" at the bottom-left of the Fiddler window?

    Often, this means that your system administrator has set a group policy which blocks the changing of the system's proxy setting. On Fiddler's LOG tab, what, if anything, do you see?

    When Fiddler is running, what do you see inside IE's Tools > Internet Options > Connections > LAN Settings?
