Hello, I am a pretty new to the fiddler program, and I was wondering why the requests from a certain game's servers weren't showing up. I do have another program however that showed the game servers, but for some reason fiddler doesn't.

 

Here's the server host.

http://hawaii-pc.needforspeed.com

 

Anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this?

Thanks.

Hello Daniel,

 

Fiddler is an HTTP/HTTPS/FTP proxy, and unless the game server is exposing a service via HTTP, then you won't be able to capture traffic from it. Most game servers are using UPD (and not TCP), so if that is the case, you won't be able to use Fiddler to capture the traffic. The provided address (http://hawaii-pc.needforspeed.com) is returning  400, so I guess that this endpoint is not valid, or in case it is a valid HTTP endpoint, then you might need to provide the specific port it is using.

Hello once again, I just wanted to ask one more thing. Apparently this game server is using tcp, so why is fiddler not finding it?

Hi Daniel,

 

I was unclear in my previous answer - Fiddler is an HTTP/HTTPS/FTP proxy and can not capture TCP/UDP traffic that is not going through those specific ports. The server you are referring to is using other port (and not HTTP, HTTPS, FTP).
