Live Traffic paused

I have setup Fiddler on Ubuntu 18.04, installed the cert, enabled HTTPS, tried both enabling/disabling as a proxy, confirmed network connectivity (outside of fiddler, and the fiddler app shows network connected)...yet nothing I do will removes the "paused" from the Live Traffic setting.  After about an hour of reading, web searches etc it would appear I have completed everything correctly.  This is on AWS, EC2, elastic public IP....I even opened up all ports to all traffic...what could I be missing??  Screen capture included.

SOLVED - after digging and seeing numerous references to gsetting - the standard EC2 image of Ubuntu this is not installed.  I resolved by installing:

sudo apt-get install dconf-editor

sudo apt install libglib2.0-bin


This solved the paused issue...so now I will try out the capture feature :-)

 


Hey,



The enabled Live Traffic should not be paused, which is not quite right, and it is probably related to Fiddler Everywhere being unable to change the OS proxy settings dynamically. Can you verify if you (the account under which Fiddler runs) have administrative rights to change and update the OS proxy settings?


You can also test if you can capture traffic from a Chromium browser (Chrome, Brave) while using the Open Browser feature.


Please send us the Fiddler Everywhere application logs (from Help > Open Application Logs Folder) in a private thread to support@getfiddler.com (avoid posting them online as those might contain sensitive data).

Hi, I have sent the logs.  The server is not setup to use a proxy, however AWS does have a NAT Gateway setup to access the internet so Fiddler has no issue/problems getting out.  I have tried to install on another server and it behaves the same way (always paused).  I tried to run Fiddler as root and it definitely does not like that, I also tried to run fiddler with sudo - same behavior if trying to run as root.  So I am left with running with my ID which does have sudo priviledges however cannot run fiddler with sudo.
