If you need to monitor / check http requests sent by FDO WMS/WFS providers you can use Fiddler. Setting it up correctly took me some time and caused head scratching as well. Fiddler is not aware of FDO http requests – you need to reroute the requests to Fiddlers internal proxy server. I sit behind a network proxy which makes things bit more complicated.
|FDO WMS in Map - http requests are shown in Fiddler|
Here is my configuration – actually quite simple:
- Fiddler (126.96.36.199)
- Fiddler Options > Gateway > "Use System Proxy"
(when changing settings there restart Fiddler).
- Map 2013 SP2 Data Connect > FDO WMS Provider, proxy settings:
Proxy-server: 127.0.0.1, port: 8888 (Fiddlers internal proxy)
username /-password: my Windows credentials required to get through our network proxy server.
This doesn't work for all WMS servers I have tested so far.
