    we tried using “compose” tab in Fiddler for testing OPTIONS method.
    But by using that we are getting same status for OPTION and GET method requests that is (200 OK), even though we have restricted OPTIONS methods from web.config.(Attached screenshot as Fiddler_response.png)

    Just to confirm we used HttpRequester tool ,an AddOn in Firefox, we test and found difference between the GET and OPTIONS methods requests status. As we have restricted OPTIONS method, it was giving 404 for OPTION request and for GET it is giving 200 as response.(Attached screenshot as httprequester_response.png)
    Please suggest how to test HTTP methods with fiddler, so that we can differentiate between the status for restricted and non-restricted HTTP methods.
    Config changes and fiddler version are attached with this ticket

    Fiddler only sends what you tell it to; if you told it to send an OPTIONS request, that's what it sent.

    Your other tool's target URL is using HTTP, you've asked for HTTPS with Fiddler.
