Hello,

I'm kind of new to fiddler and I was wondering if I could send a request to a website to which I know I will get a redirect (tinyurl.com/...), but not automatically go to the linked site.

When I use the composer to create a GET request, he automatically also goes to the linked location and sends a request to the other location. Can I tell fiddler not to send the second request? I want to inspect the location where I'll be sent to so I can verify if I get a shortened url, I'm not directed to a malicious site.

Hello, Ken--

On the Composer's Options tab, untick the Follow Redirects box. Having said that, unlike with a browser, there's no type of malicious URL that will cause you any problems inside Fiddler.

Thanks for the reply. I thought as much, but I still don't want the request to go through. :)
