If you already have
installed Internet Explorer 7 and during WebApp development you use Fiddler,
you have probably noticed, that the Fiddler does not react (more) on any
request related to your ASP.NET application.
This is because the IE
does not route local machine requests tha same way as it was done in the
previous versions of IE.
Hmmm, this is not so fine.
To solve the problem, it could be possible to use some other name than
“localhost”. Unfortunately, the build-in web server (cassini) does not allow
you to use any other name as the host name. And this is not so fine.
Fortunately, there is very
simple workaround. For example, assume your WebApp usually starts with
following request: http://localhost:1234/VirtFolder/MyWebApp
To make it working, start
the application as usual (Fiddler does not track the request) and change the
request as shown bellow:
Note that the localhost
ends with dot “.”. If the application use forms authentication you
will have to logon again.
