login behind corporate proxy

I am trying to login to fiddler anywhere on Ubuntu.  But since the system is behind proxy, while logging into proxy, i get network error.

I have configured the proxy in env variables as well as network settings >proxy, but it does not work.

Please provide a way to configure the corporate proxy for fiddler everywhere before login

Hello Greg,


Indeed at this very moment, FIddler Everywhere client requires an active Internet connection and won't work when there is no direct connection set up. I agree that this limits the usage so I've logged this one as an enhancement feature request - the team will discuss it at our next planning meeting.

Once again thank you for your valued feedback and observation! We will update this thread as soon as we have more insight into the matter.

This item is not Completed. That doc page for manually setting a proxy doesn't address this problem because it requires Fiddler Everywhere to already be up and running. How does anyone behind a no-direct-internet-access firewall actually launch Fiddler Everywhere prior to telling it to use an explicit proxy? It just hangs for me because it wants to talk directly to some internet resources (for updates and/or to force me to login ugh!). Even before the login page pops up I see hung TCP connection attempts which show up as SYN-SENT state sockets in netstat output. How do I tell Fiddler Everywhere to use a proxy even before it starts?

To reproduce this issue, try to launch Fiddler Everywhere behind a firewall that doesn't allow direct internet access and requires proxying.

Hello San Sal,


The section for setting a manual proxy configuration is available atSettings > Gateway > Manual Proxy Configuration. Related documentation article can be found here.
