HTTP Clients

1. Problems

Proxyman might not capture or get SSL Error from HTTP/HTTPS Requests, which makes from some HTTP Clients, such as Postman, Insomnia Rest, and Paw app.

This documentation would provide a solution to make Proxyman works.

2. Postman

  1. Open Postman Preference

  2. In General Tab -> Uncheck the "SSL certificate validation" checkbox

  3. In Proxy Tab -> Check the "Use the System Proxy" and "Respect HTTP_PROXY and HTTPS_PROXY variables".

3. Insomnia Rest

  1. Open Insomnia Preference -> General Tab

  2. Uncheck the "Validate Certificates" checkbox

  3. Check "Enable Proxy" and enter localhost:9090 in HTTP Proxy and HTTPS Proxy Textbox.

4. Paw

By default, Paw app uses the System Proxy Configuration. Thus, Proxyman can work out of the box.

If you don't see any Paw traffic from Proxyman, please double-check:

  1. Open Paw Preference.

  2. Make sure you're using System Proxy Configuration in the Proxy Setting.
