13. Testing and Debugging > 13.8. Using a TCP Trace Utility

Using a TCP Trace Utility

Have you wondered how you can view the HTTP headers going back and forth between Flash Remoting and your client movie? Or how you can view the AMF data that Flash Remoting uses to communicate? Or how to see the SOAP packets that are going back and forth from Flash Remoting to a web service? A TCP trace utility can be a good debugging tool when you are building applications that access web services or when you are having problems with client/server communication.

Basically, a TCP trace tool listens to a port and outputs any activity to a window so that you can examine it or save it to a file. For example, if you are sending a request to a web service and receiving a response that is inaccurate, you can examine the SOAP packet directly using a TCP trace utility.
