Using burp to test thick client with hardcoded IP

Eric | Last updated: Sep 07, 2018 04:58AM UTC

Hello, I am looking to test a thick client that has a hardcoded IP. I am running in a windows environment so I can't use iptables to forward the ports. Is there a solution to this problem? Thanks

I believe it's possible to port forward on Windows too, although I've not done this myself. Some information here: - https://stackoverflow.com/questions/11525703/port-forwarding-in-windows Otherwise, you could connect the Windows system to a Linux router and use iptables on the router - and these could be virtual machines not physical systems. There's some general information on testing non-proxy aware clients here: - https://support.portswigger.net/customer/portal/articles/2899081-using-burp-s-invisible-proxy-settings-to-test-a-non-proxy-aware-thick-client-application
