    I ever use my computer name to map proxy or access fiddler cert page, like this

    Proxy hostname: mycomname, Proxy port: 8888

    http://mycomname:8888

    But now I must use http://192.168.0.2:8888 in my mobile&virtual mobile app (for mycomname, it says Webpage not available).

    I can still use http://mycomname:8888 in Firefox/Chrome though, it show correct fiddler cert page.

    Computer name is prefer because it's not be changed every time.

    This happen after I switch from my Samsung S4 mobile hotspot to S9+. Can you guild me what is the problem/needed to be set.

     

    *Relate information: popup of top-right 'online' status in fiddler

    Host: mycomname

    Domain:

    192.168.0.2

    192.168.89.2

    ...

    oh but if I set proxy there as Proxy hostname: mycomname, Proxy port: 8888

    I can access http://mycomname:8888 via mobile/vm which confirm the computer name is valid but it cant be used directly.

    Hello Ryuu,

    I think the settings you are looking for are not Fiddler related. Can you check this article that explains how to access a computer by machine name inside android mobile hotspot.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the reply even though it's not related to fiddler.

     

    I suspect it may not relate to fiddler but I don't know what to do so I post here in case someone know the issue. I try to set dns with dns changer already and try it all on source mobile (hotspot's source) so that it'll not interfered by other problems

    from ipconfig -all my computer ip is 192.168.43.112 and dns server 192.168.43.1

    So I set both DNS to 192.168.43.1 it still cant reach http://mycomname:8888 in mobile browser(Samsung's/Chrome)

    but it can reach http://192.168.43.112:8888

    DNS setting works well because if I change it wrong I cant access website

     

    ^Just to point out that I've tried many ways but it won't work. It seem no hope about this. I changed almost all my 52 VMs' Proxy hostname though so it's good but that's the reason I ask for help so much task to work with it would be better if hostname work :D

    Very curious why it's all worked with Samsung S4 hotspot/Another PC with Lanbut not S9 hotspot with the same VM.
