I recently installed fiddler to reverse engineer an android app. How that I'm finished with my research I uninstalled fiddler. However it seems like that fiddler messed with my windows settings. I can no longer send a http request using .NET. When running the request via Postman or simply my webbrowser the request reaches my webserver and I get the answer.
This is the code I use to perform the request, which results in 'No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it. (192.168.0.96:8888)'.
So I was wondering, where this port was coming from, because I specified 5004 but it ended up to be 8888. I checked my windows proxy settings.
I also tried clearing the IWinNet Cache using fiddler. No effect.
Then I discovered that when running fiddler again, my requests goes through. I also noticed that the Capture Traffic options has no effect. No matter if I monitor the traffic or not, my request is shown in fiddler.
I don't know what to do, and really hate the fact that I always have to run a proxy in order to work!
Thanks in advance!
