I come to this product and forum on a mission and hope to learn a lot on the way. In the meantime, I am really stuck. My objective is to sniff the IMAP password coming from my iPnone to Gmail because like the idiot that I am, I forget the password and cannot now log into my account regularly, all I can do is get my email via the iPhone Mail app.
So, what I need to do is detect the IMAP password as it is sent over WiFi to the Gmail servers. Here is what I've done so far:
1) Installed the program on a Win 7 laptop.
2) Accepted the certificate it installed.
3) Checked to make sure there was a rule allowing incoming connections to any port for Fiddler.
4) Began following each instruction on https://docs.telerik.com/fiddler/Configure-Fiddler/Tasks/ConfigureForiOS
5) Enabled "Allow remote computers to connect.
6) Restarted Fiddler.
7) Identified the Fiddler machines' IP address.
8) And here is where the trouble started because I cannot complete the next task: Verify client iOS device can reach Fiddler by navigating in the browser to http://FiddlerMachineIP:8888. This address should return the Fiddler Echo Service page.
Every time I type it into the Safari bar on the iPhone, or Chrome on a laptop also connected to the same WiFi, I get an error that the page cannot be found. 3G/4G is turned off, so the phone is definitely using WiFi, as is the third laptop, and I cannot get anywhere with that address. I was wondering whether the router has something to do with this (Optimum) but I figured such a common issue would surely be listed in the instructions page, and moreover, this is all local and I thought the traffic doesn't even hit the router when on the local network, but I could be wrong.
Any help with this would be great...
And if I could also ask, once I get this working, what is the precise setup I need to use in Fiddler to find the name/password combination for my Gmail account. I assume I need to identify the exact capture line and click on it, but where would I see the data itself, and is there an easy way to identify what the line might say since it seems to capture so much and it's hard for a newbie like me to make sense of most of it.
Thanks so much for anyone who can help me!
