The server talk tab of the web browser is an extremely detailed log of the headers sent an received from the internal server, and it is also used when the "Spy HTTP proxy" is enabled while browsing the internet.





Under the * REQUEST *, the complete header send from the client (the web browser) is shown. You can see all the queries sent plus the post data.


Under the * RESPONSE * you can see the complete header sent from the server in response to request. If the internal server is being used, you will also see the what the internal server is doing.



Using the spy HTTP proxy


If enabled, all headers sent and received by OptiPerl's internal browser while browsing the internet will be shown. To use, enable it, and navigate to any URL by entering the address in the menu "Browser" and pressing "Go to URL"


Use the spy proxy on your own scripts after uploading on your server.



Using the spy HTTP proxy on an external server via loopback


If you are running on an external server via loopback, you can also see the headers sent and received, but you must  change the "Host url" in the Options or Project options dialog to http://localhost/ or http://<name of machine>/



Settings how many threads to watch and filtering headers.


If you access a page that loads many graphics and / or scripts, the output might get mixed up from the multiple requests. Increase the number of threads watched (this does not affect the internal server) and add a wildcard to show only the requests / responses on the matching files.
