    Can fiddler show the traffic from/to a Node.js client or server? If so, what do I need to configure?

    Hello, James--

    Fiddler is a proxy server; it shows any traffic sent to it. It will show traffic from any browser to any remote server (regardless of the server technology). It will show traffic from a server (e.g. an ASP.NET page, Node.js app, etc) if that server is configured to proxy its requests.

    For a Node.js request, see, for instance: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/8697344/can-a-proxy-like-fiddler-be-used-with-node-jss-clientrequest ... the exact details depend on which of the myriad HTTP libraries you're using to issue requests from the node script.
