Type: Feature Request
Fiddler AutoResponder should have "Accept all CONNECTs" option

Today, Fiddler's AutoResponder only automatically replies to a HTTPS CONNECT with a HTTP/200 OK if the capture contains such a response, or if the "Unmatched requests passthrough" box is unchecked. Otherwise, the CONNECT request will pass or fail based on whether the real server is reachable.

This is confusing, and almost never what the user really wants to have happen.

We should add a new checkbox to the AutoResponder titled "Accept all CONNECTs" that when checked, sets a hidden rule equivalent to this rule which can be created manually


Otherwise, users will be sad when AutoResponder doesn't do what they hope, and they'll wonder why they are getting ERR_TUNNEL_CONNECTION_FAILED error messages in their browser when they have AutoResponder rules for HTTPS requests that they expect to fire.
