Dixin’s Blog – Use Fiddler with Node.js

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/10/30

[Archive.is] Dixin’s Blog – Use Fiddler with Node.js Fiddler is an useful HTTP proxy debugger on Windows. It would be nice if it can work with Node.js applications. To do this, just need to proxy Node.js requests through Fiddler… on port 8888.

There is a snippet for it at github/Dixin/CodeSnippets/…/fiddler.js (now moved to [WayBack] github.com/Dixin/Blog/…/Blog/Dixin.Nodejs/fiddler.js)

It complements a few posts I’ve written about Fiddler using port 8888 as a proxy before:

Using Chrome on Windows with a different proxy server than the system one (which is used by Internet Explorer)

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/10/25

By default, Chrome uses the same proxy server as Internet Explorer: the system one that your Chrome settings page accesses from chrome://settings/search#proxy through this command-line call:

"C:\Windows\system32\rundll32.exe" C:\Windows\system32\shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL C:\Windows\system32\inetcpl.cpl,,4

There is no GUI way inside Chrome to change this, but there is a command-line parameter: --proxy-server="ipaddress:port"

So create a new shortcut to Chrome, then you can change it.

This comes in very handy if you want to test

  • some sessions through for instance Internet Explorer going through HTTP Fiddler (that defaults at localhost:8888)
  • other sessions through Cntlm (that defaults to localhost:3128)

Some background information:

Notes and links on proxytunnel, sslh, apache, stunnel, putty, ssh and more

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/12/12

This is based on lots of help from Rui Seabra with a G+ remark I made a while ago: “So what would be a proper way to setup an SSH connection over HTTPS given that the proxy in between is CNTLM providing credentials to an NTLM authenticating proxy that does HTTPS man-in-the-moddle? Clients are Linux or Windows with admin access. On the outside Linux with admin access as well.
This is also becoming more and more relevant with “free” WiFi providers only allowing HTTP/HTTPS and playing HTTPS Man-in-the-Middle.”

So the situation is something like this:

  • client ssh client
  • stunnel client
  • man-in-the-middle HTTP/HTTPS proxy only allowing outgoing traffic on ports 80/443
  • server: sslh
    • server apache daemon
    • stunnel daemon
    • server ssh daemon

It was fun while it lasted: Barracuda Copy – Copy End-of-Life

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/02/05

Copy had some advantages and disadvantages. For instance, it was better handling long file names, character encodings in filenames and a lot easier to configure over a CNTLM proxy than DropBox, but unlike DropBox didn’t keep history of changes.

Alas no more copy.com as of 20160501: [WayBack] Barracuda Copy – Copy End-of-Life.

They suggest using [WayBackMover with OneDrive as target: [WayBackBarracuda Copy – Moving Your Data from Copy

Note that Mover has many more connectors, including cloud storage ones (Box, Copy, Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive and Yandex.Disk are free):

[WayBack] Connectors • Mover: FTP, Dropbox, Box, GoogleDrive, Copy, Egnyte, Amazon S3, SharePoint, MySQL the list goes on!

For me it means it’s time to think about what kinds of cloud storage I want to use and how to share what data with others at which access level. As I’m already contemplating on how to use ZFS, I now have two storage concepts to think about.

Error during: git svn clone “RA layer request failed: PROPFIND request failed on” means fix your proxy configuration

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/05/22

When during a git svn clone you get an error message starting with “RA layer request failed: PROPFIND request failed on” it means you have to set your git svn proxy.

This is in a different location than the git proxy setting (it would be too easy if these were the same, right?).

So you do not get/set it through commands like these:

git config --global --get http.proxy
git config --global http.proxy localhost:3128

Via Cannot do git-svn fetch behind proxy and  git svn clone died of signal 11 under cygwin (thanks janosFredrik Pihl and User Pavel, I found out that you need to change these files (create the .subversion directory and servers file when they do not exist):

  • Windows:
    • %HomeShare%\.subversion\servers
    • %UserProfile%\.subversion\serverssour
  • Linux:
    • ~/.subversion/servers

If you ever run in the same problem with the regular SVN client, then you need to change yet different files (why have 1 standard when you can have many?):

  • Windows:
    • %AppData%\Roaming\Subversion\servers
  • Linux:
    • ~/Subversion/servers

Ensure a section like this exists and fill in the blanks:

[global]
# http-proxy-exceptions = *.exception.com, www.internal-site.org
http-proxy-host = YOURPROXY.com
http-proxy-port = YOURPORT
# http-proxy-username = defaultusername
# http-proxy-password = defaultpassword
# http-compression = no
# http-auth-types = basic;digest;negotiate
# No http-timeout, so just use the builtin default.
# No neon-debug-mask, so neon debugging is disabled.
# ssl-authority-files = /path/to/CAcert.pem;/path/to/CAcert2.pem<

Notes:

In some poorly managed networked environments, the %AppData% environment variable can be wrong, so make sure your Windows profile is not somewhere on a network share.

TortoiseGit seems to use yet another directory for GIT SVN server configuration.
