Get proxy accepting connections

b0t | Last updated: Oct 24, 2016 01:11AM UTC

In the last 2 releases of Burp 1.7.08, 1.7.09 I have not been able to get any data to proxy through Burp. I have reset all of the proxy settings to default, and checked that the browsers I am using can proxy through other SOCKS proxies I have. Nothing seems to work. I can see that Burp is creating a TCP6? tunnel on tcp6 0 0 :::* LISTEN 924/java That doesn't seem right I am using all of the default proxy settings. Nmap reports the port open, but I can't get any information through it. Nmap reports the port open on my local system $ nmap -p8080 -A -vvv Starting Nmap 7.12 ( https://nmap.org ) at 2016-10-23 19:47 CDT NSE: Loaded 138 scripts for scanning. NSE: Script Pre-scanning.

Just to check, was this a problem that first appeared in the last couple of versions of Burp, and things were working fine before? If so, we aren’t aware of anything relevant that we have changed in those versions, so we assume that something has changed on your system. Please can you try editing your default proxy listener configuration, to manually select the required specific IPv4 interface, rather than letting Burp try to select the loopback adapter. This might help get the binding working correctly.
