Network Traffic on Windows

If you have access to the end user's device, it can be helpful to inspect network traffic when troubleshooting a problem with the Geocortex Mobile App Framework.

Inspect Network Traffic with Fiddler

The Geocortex Mobile App Framework for Windows does not have a network log. However, you can inspect all network traffic with a third-party web-debugging tool called Fiddler.

To inspect network traffic using Fiddler:

  1. Download and install Fiddler on your Windows device.

  2. Start the Geocortex Mobile App Framework.

  3. Start Fiddler.

    The next three steps are optional but useful to exclude network traffic unrelated to the Geocortex Mobile App Framework for Windows.

  4. In the right side panel, click the Filters tab.

  5. Select the Use Filters checkbox.

  6. Select the Show only traffic from checkbox and then select the option that begins with Geocortex: from the drop-down list, for example, Geocortex:1234 - My Viewer.

    The exact name of the option differs depending on the process ID and window title of the Geocortex Mobile App Framework. However, the option will always begin with Geocortex followed by a colon (:).

  7. Use the Geocortex Mobile App Framework.

    Fiddler displays the relevant network traffic.

  8. To display more information about a particular network activity, click the activity and then click the Inspectors tab.
