Hey, Fiddler is a great tool! It's an invaluable part of my workflow, and I really appreciate the work put into it.

My question is , is it possible to use the AutoResponder to respond with a 500 status code, or any other status code than 200 and 404? I have read the AutoResponder docs and can't see anything, but perhaps there's something I'm missing, or some undocumented *action that can do this?

My use case is that I want to test the error handling in my application's REST API by selectively breaking different paths and checking that the UI handles it sensibly.

Of course you can-- you can use the AutoResponder to return anything you like.

The simplest way to do it would be to pick any of the "50x_.dat" files that are listed in the "Reply with File" section of the Actions dropdown.
