Fiddler/Wireshark with Roku

Hello Roku geeks out there,

I would like to know how exactly can we hook up roku device with web deugging proxys such as fiddler, wireshark or charles proxy? I think this makes the web service calls debugging easy and fast.

Thanks
Sonny

Re: Fiddler/Wireshark with Roku

You can enable a TCP dump on the box itself which will capture partial packets that you can then view in Wireshark:

Press Home 5x, FF 3x, Rewind 2x:
"enable debug logging" - tcpdump is now enabled on the box. It creates a circular log of packet traces that can be accessed at http://<ipaddrOfDvp>/pkgs/ in log0,log1, log2,log3 that can be filled circularly.

Perhaps that is all you'll need. I've also used Virtual Router to allow capture with Wireshark.

Just turned on the debug and used a log0 with CocoaPacketAnalyzer. Worked fine, just had to rename the file to log0.pcap
