    I installed Fiddler 4 to test a connection problem with a webservice.  This was the suggestion of the webservice provider.  After I captured the logs they needed, I uninstalled it because I found I was getting some errors and warning connecting to various websites unrelated to the project. 

    We got the webservice problem fixed but I discovered my netbeans project will not connect without Fiddler running.  Any idea how I can separate these?

    Thanks,

    Chris

    Hi,

    In essence Fiddler is a proxy so you have to be looking at the current proxy settings of your netbeans project (or maybe of the entire system where that project runs).

    Tsviatko,

    I appreciate your reply.  Assume I am a blazing idiot. I checked my computer and it is set to "Detect Proxy Settings".  I checked Netbeans and it is set to use system proxy settings (meaning my computer). I don't understand how my project has become dependent on Fiddler?

    Hello,

    Well, all Fiddler does is to change the system proxy setting to point to itself on startup and set it back to automatic proxy detection on exit. Apparently this worked out just fine on your system.

    Netbeans interaction with the system proxy settings seems to be the most probable cause for this problem provided that only Netbeans based software is affected. Or is this the case? Are other Netbeans projects on the same system affected? Are other apps, i.e the browsers affected? What is the scope of the problem?
