I am a new Fiddler classic user on Windows 10.  I can easily monitor http(s) requests of my browsers such as Chrome or Microsoft Edge. However, no http(s) requests are seen from my Application "Ubuntu on Windows". I have checked it (exemted) in WinConfig toolbar. What could be the problem here. Thanks in advance!

Hi Mohammadmehdi,

 

 

You must configure the "Ubuntu on Windows" application to use the system proxy which is the Fiddler proxy when Fiddler catering is on. As this application is basically a WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux) you can use the known Linux techniques for setting proxy.

For example, here is how to set a system-wide proxy through global environmental variables

export http_proxy=127.0.0.1:8888
export https_proxy=127.0.0.1:8888
