Other Usages of TCPMon

TCPMon is primarily used for message monitoring. Additionally, TCPMon can also be used for sending requests to web services and as a proxy service. Refer Starting TCPMon for details on how to start the tool.

Sending requests to Web services

TCPMon can also be used as a request sender for Web services. The request SOAP message can be pasted on the Send screen and sent directly to the server.

As a proxy

TCPMon can act as a proxy. To start it in proxy mode, select the Proxy option shown below. When acting as a proxy, TCPMon only needs the listener port to be configured.

Select Proxy

Advanced settings

TCPMon can simulate a slow connection, in which case the delay and the bytes to be dropped can be configured. This is useful when testing Web services.

Advanced settings

Also, if HTTP proxy support is required, that can also be set on the admin screen.
