How to capture a Fiddler trace for Git for Windows

Prerequisites to download/install:


  1. Run gitfiddler.cmd in a new command prompt.  This script configures git.exe to use Fiddler as a proxy, and then waits for a key press.  Once a key is pressed, the script clears the settings that it sets, and then exists.
    • Leave the script running for now.
    • READ the script before running it!
  2. Start Fiddler
  3. Run your git commands
  4. Select the captured requests in Fiddler and save them in a ArchiveZip (*.saz) file.

    Using this script just causes git authentication errors, no more git operations possible..
