HTTPS - No connection details, only connects - Eveenah - 04-06-2015 09:21 PM

Hello,

Recently installed instance doesn't show any details about https connections, only CONNECT's:

No GET requests, no POST's. Just pure CONNECTS and that is all. Since details is not visible, test results are incorrect.

I believe that may happen because browser have configured proxy (thru system settings).

Any ideas why this may happen and how to resolve that issue?

Any help will be appreciated. Thank you!

P.S. Have latest WPT updates, tested on IE and chrome(most recent), installed/uninstalled ipfwdummynet/pcap, nothing helps.

OS: Windows Server 2008R2 64
Chrome: 32 bit
WPT agent - latest one from update link

Yes, that is because you are using a proxy and that is how proxies work for HTTPS. You should not use a proxy when doing performance testing unless you're trying to test proxy performance specifically. Browsers behave VERY differently when going through a proxy.
