I needed to test the local web application. As usual, I was going to use Burpsuite but localhost traffic didn’t intercepted. So I googled about this. It was take little much time to find out than i thought. (Firefox blah blah… I’m not big fan of it. I’m using Chrome + SwitchyOmega(chrome extension))
Anyway, If you need to capture local traffic, Add a new entry in
/etc/hosts file with a new hostname pointing to
127.0.0.1. I added
lokalhost for hostname. Like this:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 ## # Host Database # # localhost is used to configure the loopback interface # when the system is booting. Do not change this entry. ## 127.0.0.1 localhost 127.0.0.1 lokalhost ...
If the settings for the proxy have been set up properly, intercepting will work.
