Cannot load certificates via ‘magic’ url on Ubuntu 16.04.5 LTS
- Install mitmproxy via tarball from https://snapshots.mitmproxy.org/4.0.4/mitmproxy-4.0.4-linux.tar.gz (download, untar into ‘/opt/mitmproxy’
- Launch mitmproxy (/opt/mitmproxy/mitmproxy)
- Launch browser (Tried with both Chrome and Firefox)
- visit ‘mitm.it’
- Expected: ‘Click to install the mitm proxy certificate’ per documentation
Actual: Error message: “If you can see this, traffic is not passing through mitmproxy.”
I did search this message and found “https://github.com/mitmproxy/mitmproxy/issues/2341” which was closed with no action and referred to https://github.com/mitmproxy/mitmproxy.org/issues/20 which is open.
In the case of google-chrome, setting all_proxy=localhost:8080 prior to launching chrome didn’t seem to help.
This seems like it should be a simple thing and I’m sure I’m just missing something but I’m pretty green re: proxy setup.
