I am running a Java application upon my Ubuntu box that is making API calls to endpoint

This endpoint has multiple hosts when I ping-ed it:


This API endpoint has DigiCert certificate, and the data communication is using HTTP POST using Basic Authentication, and the body requests and responses are JSON.

I am trying to capture these HTTP POST requests & responses, I have tried using the following as the filter, but nothing is getting captured:

(ip.addr == || ip.addr == || ip.addr == || ip.addr == && http

I am use to working with "Fiddler 2" on Windows 7, so I am new to this tool on Ubuntu.

Ok, I am able to capture traffic between a Java app using HttpsURLConnection POST to API endpoint

Using ping, the discovered IP addresses included in filter are:

(ip.addr == || ip.addr == || ip.addr == || ip.addr == && tcp
