Since HTTP has became the most commonly used protocol, TcpCatcher provides a large tool box for helping you debug any HTTP based conversation :

  • images captured at network level are displayed
  • HTTP headers definition pops up
  • monitors servers response or ping time, upload/download rates, port scanner
  • simulate slow connection and packet loss
Unlike any other tools, TcpCatcher has the great ability of letting you interfere in the communication at proxy level:
