Gentlemen,
Ladies,

My question is relatively simple. I do all of my work on a Mac Studio M1, using OsX.

When doing .NET development I usually run Visual Studio on Windows 11 on ARM or in another Virtual machine, run from an actual Windows machine.

I'm not a big fan of the 2nd option, since the machine can be sluggish at times, but... the VM has Fiddler Everywhere up & running, the Parallels version does not.

Windows for ARM allows me to install the application, but it does not start up.

I do have Fiddler installed on my Mac itself, so I was wondering... is there a way I can monitor/capture what's occurring on my Parallels machine?

You can set the traffic from anywhere to single point (your Mac). You just need to know how to set a proxy, instead of that Fiddler do it for you usually. For example, if your Mac IP is 192.168.1.6, then set it in anywhere else to proxy at 192.168.1.6:8888 (any port you use, in case it's not default). For easy usage, set static IP for you Mac so it did not change.

I use this method with different pc/mobile to direct and parse requests in my main pc so that should work well. *Because my secondary pc is slow, and sure I cant install fiddler in mobile. Also I don't want multiple script/version control.

Hi Olivier,

 

In addition to the suggestion provided by Ryuu, you should note that Fiddler can act as a proxy host only for remote clients that are on the same network. That considered if you want to set Fiddler as a proxy in your CM, then Parallels network should be as a bridge (refer to this KB article: https://kb.parallels.com/4948).

With the above in mind, the instruction for settings Fiddler as a proxy for a remote devices (that are within the same local network) are posted here:
