No Websocket history

Bartek | Last updated: Dec 14, 2018 03:06PM UTC

Hi, I have iOS device connected through Burp suite proxy. Bind to address: All intefaces. I can see everything in http history, but there is nothing in WebSocket history. And I'm quite sure I open Web socket connection from iOS device. What do I have to do to see WebSocket history? Regards

Burp will display WebSocket history automatically; there's nothing you need to do. One way to check if there's WebSocket traffic is to look for the initial request that established the web socket. This is a normal HTTP request, but with a "Connected: Upgrade" header. Also, be aware that Burp's WebSocket history only shows messages - it doesn't include "connection opened" as a message. Also, how are you opening the web socket from the iOS device? It's possible that you're doing it in a way that doesn't use your proxy settings.
