Monitoring Traffic To Cassini On Localhost?

Jul 22, 2010

I'm experiencing some really odd timeout issues when running a ASP.NET 2.0 project on Cassini on localhost, and I don't have enough data to get a clue of what's going on.

Is there a way to monitor localhost traffic to Cassini, either using some specific development tool or a general-purpose monitoring app such as fiddler?

Just to pre-empt some answers I'm already aware of:

Normally I can use the well-known dot-hack for using fiddler to monitor localhost traffic, but with Cassini I get the following error message in the browser:

[Fiddler] Connection to localhost. failed. Exception Text: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it ::1:3213

Fiddler also listens to localhost on http://ipv4.fiddler:port, and I can intercept the traffic. But when I do this the timeout issues don't occur!

Edit: Oops. This question had already been asked... Twice.. Didn't come up on search or . The solution found in the second thread is to use the dot-hack with ip-address ( instead of "localhost". This question may be closed.

Test Pages With Web Services When Cassini Available?

May 18, 2010

I'm developing a web site in a high-security environment. For example, we use CAC cards to authenticate users over SSL. The site is a mix of VB.NET and C# on .NET 3.5 with some AJAX. The AJAX parts are now calling web services for things like Cascading Drop Down Lists. We've been running VS2008 configured on our local PCs to use IIS instead of the default server (Cassini). However, some security policies were rolled out to the desktops over the weekend and, suddenly, we're not allowed to run IIS on our PCs anymore. I already have some of our IT people trying to appeal for waivers for developers. In the meantime, I need to find a way to keep developing. If I turn off the SSL requirement to the 'secure' part of the application (locally, my PC only) I can serve up some of the pages (using Cassini) when I hit "F5", but pages with web services just bring up "server application unavailable". I need to be able to add some more functions into the existing web services, among other things, so the ability to single-step through the code is still a necessity. I'm sure someone who is limited to using Cassini has found a way to Build/Debug pages in VS2008 when webservices are involved. As it turns out, some links had "HTTPS://" hard-coded in them (I inherited these). Changing the link to "~folderpage.aspx" allowed Cassini to properly serve things up.

Using Authentication / Authorization With Cassini Development Server?

Mar 7, 2011

I've just run into one of the problems of using the integrated dev server (Cassini) in VS and would like to see if there are any solutions.We're using authentication to secure the site. However, Cassini runs in integrated pipeline mode, meaning that requests for all files go through the isapi. The result of this is that it's securing files that would otherwise not be secured in a production environment (.htm .js .css etc..).

Now I understand that we can run the project on a local IIS instance, but we would like to avoid this if possible. But, because of the problem above, this is looking like the only solution.Does anybody have any ideas about how to get Cassini working with authentication that can be easily moved to a production environment when ready. (I'd also like to avoid having a different development web.config that specifically allows access to these files).

.net - Cassini (VS WebDev) Executing BeginRequest And EndRequest On Different Threads?

Dec 17, 2010

I'm debugging an ASP.NET MVC 2 application running on .NET 4.0 (Windows 7), currently inside of Cassini, the Visual Studio Debugging Web Server.All was running well, when I suddenly was having exceptions in my Application.EndRequest handler. After investigating into this issue, I found the reason was that Cassini was calling EndRequest on a different thread than BeginRequest (then, a ThreadStatic variable which was set in BeginRequest and used in the EndRequest handler was null, since on this thread, BeginRequest was never called).What could be the reason for Cassini to execute BeginRequest and EndRequest on different threads?I know the reason could be an 'Async' Page directive (see Do ASP.NET Requests always BeginRequest and EndRequest on the same thread? , but I have no 'Async' attribute in my Page directives).

Redirecting Traffic To The New Site?

Apr 4, 2011

We have a web site up and are moving to a new site, with a more modern design and some jQuery/ajax features for better usability. The old site is on IIS6 and the new one is on IIS7.5. The old site is on and the new site is on I want to test out how the load will affect the new server, so I want to begin sending users to the new site slowly. I want to start sending every 20th user to the new site and save a cookie so that a user that was directed to the new site will always be directed to the new site and a user which was directed to the old site will always be directed to the old site, as long as we don't change a key and "reset" the system.I was wondering where would be the best place to implement this behavior / logic?

C# - Is It Possible To Use Fiddler To Debug HTTP Traffic

Jul 18, 2010

I am using ASP.Net + .Net 3.5 + VSTS 2008 + IIS 7.0 + C# to develop a web application. I want to use Fiddler to debug (i.e. monitor request and response Http traffic) local traffic -- i.e. when I test web application inside VSTS 2008's built-in test ASP.Net web server. Is that feasible? If yes, how to monitor such traffic? For example, in VSTS 2008's built-in ASP.Net test web application server, the Url I want to monitor request traffic sent to [URL] and its response (i.e. when F5 is pressed in VSTS 2008).

BTW: I previously think Fiddler could only be used to monitor port 80 Http traffic, not sure whether port 1870 could be monitored?

Health Monitoring And The Event Log?

May 31, 2010

I've set up the health monitoring system to output to the event log. Everything is working fine, though I'm wondering if there is a way to:

A) Define the event source as my application name (it currently appears as ASP.NET 2.0.50727.0)

B) Adjust the level of severity. Currently, all events are recorded as a "Warning", and it would be nice to tag some as "Error".

Wcf - Fiddler Not Sniffing SOAP Traffic From Website

May 6, 2010

So far I've been successfully using fiddler to sniff web service traffic from both test fixtures, console apps and web projects.

Today I noticed I am not able anymore to sniff that kind of traffic if I am running my web application (it's a ASP.NET website, hosted locally on IIS). I see all the local traffic but the web service traffic is just gone (the service is being hit as I do see the response debugging into the code).

I am still able to successfully sniff soap requests and responses from test fixtures or console apps in the same solution (exact same environment).If it was a windows (I am on Win7) security update or the likes it would never work I guess (unless it affects only traffic routed through IIS).

What should I be looking for that could cause the emergence this behavior?

NOTE: I can see local traffic, but not the SOAP request/responses to the web service which is not hosted locally anyway (it's a sandbox another team is providing)

EDIT: This bit of configuration did the trick (found on Rick Strahl's blog)

Looking For Good Website Monitoring Tool

I looked at Google's, but my boss shot it down because it involves adding a script to every page you want to track. I keep searching the web, but the stuff I am finding seems to be crap or not work all together. This is mainly for internal sites, not external. Seems liek a lot of the stuff I am finding want to give me remote statistics to a publically available site.
