    I'd like to monitor traffic generated by an android app. The app is only sending part of the traffic through the default android proxy (which is set up on the wireless connection as documented on However, I also want to monitor the part that is not going through the default android proxy.
    How can this be achieved? Maybe by using iptables?

    Hi, Klaus-- While I haven't tried this myself, there are a number of Android+Fiddler users that are successfully using iptables for this purpose.

    Note that if you need to intercept HTTPS traffic that is sent via IPTables, you may need to undertake special steps so that Fiddler can generate the correct certificate; see!searchin/httpfiddler/iptables for details.
