       I am accessing my visual studio project that resides on my laptop from my android phone. Most of it works but i have a java script file called "<script src="~/Scripts/mbsa_js.js"></script>" that shows up in fiddler with a 404. when i access the same file using visual studio, i get a 200. funny thing is that it accepts  "<script src="~/Scripts/mbsa_js.js"></script>" at one point, but in all other calls during this same fiddler process, it shows this  "<script src="~/Scripts/mbsa_js.js"></script>" file it shows 404. 

    This gets weider because when i make up a javascript file name that does not exist like "<script src="~/Scripts/mbsab_js.js"></script>" , "mbsab", fiddler shows up as 200. but,as stated, this file name does not exist, how could fiddler show it as 200 instead of 404??

    thanks for any advice and help.

    I have trouble understanding the whole scenario. Here are some clarification questions:

    - How does Fiddler fits in your scenario - is it reverse proxy of the server or is it proxy of the Android device?
    - "when i access the same file using visual studio, i get a 200." - How do you access file using Visual Studio?
