The HTTP and SSL Debug Viewer lets you observe the details of HTTP and SSL activity in DevTest Workstation. This feature can be helpful in performing diagnostics.
You access the viewer by selecting Help, HTTP/SSL Debug from the main menu.
The vertical bar at the left indicates the category of each line:
The lines are color coded as follows:
The bracketed number at the beginning of each line is a thread identifier. Multiple threads can act on the same connection.
The viewer creates the SSL output by parsing the messages in a debug log.
The SSL output includes a summary of the handshake process. When diagnosing an SSL problem, start by reviewing the handshake summary. If you need more details, review the output that appears before the summary. The viewer might not have all the data that you must have to solve the problem.
You can copy the output and paste it into a separate window as plain text. The colors are not included in the pasted version.
The viewer lets you specify whether to show all the lines, HTTP lines only, or SSL lines only.
