Hello,

I'm trying to moinitor the data stream between the server and the browser. I tried to use tcpmon for that purpose. Unfortunately I get no results. There are no entries in the traffic window in tcpmon. For testing purposes I simply used all various http (80,8080 etc.) ports for local port and then pointed the browser to the adress of cnn.com. But I get no result when browsing the page. Why is that?

Has anyone worked with tcpmon?

cheers,
Pete

You can't point the browser at cnn.com - you need to point it to tcpmon, which then in turn accesses the server. I just verified that it works fine like this: add a monitor with local port=8080, server name=www.cnn.com and server port=80. Then you can point your browser at http://localhost:8080/ and you will see the CNN page, with the traffic being logged by tcpmon.

Can it be configured as a proxy to avoid manual aiming?

It is a proxy -although not a very performant one-, but I'm not sure what you mean by "manual aiming".

This is not really a servlet question.
TCPMon ships with Apache Axis but this isn't really a web service question either.
