Debug HTTP calls from code using Wireshark

Wireshark Filter

Http calls from code are pretty common now a days. Sometime it is very difficult to understand when calls are failing, lot of things could go wrong. Some one them are –

  1. Server firewall might be blocking the call.
  2. My firewall could be the issue.
  3. Maybe server not accepting the call because I’m not sending right param or header.

However, one of my favourite tool to debug this kind of situation Wireshark. Install it from here. You can check this video to learn it or see tutorial online.

Once you have installed and running the application, you can separate network calls that you are making from your code using filter.

Use following filter –

ip.dst == 10.200.96.106 && http

ip.dst is the ip of destination server and http is refers to calls from browser.

Happy debugging 🙂
