    Android App Web Address

    Hi

    i have a strange request and dont know where to look or how to start.

    basically in a nut shell, i have a new wireless system, im going to start dishing it out throughout my work place,
    our local LEA has a bloxx system in place which is filtering websites,

    now if i attach my android phone or tablet to the wireless network, how can i find out the web address an app is trying to reach, some apps are being blocked by "Bloxx" filtering system, if i could find out the web address its trying to reach i could unblock it

    baring in mind that our local LEA are not always quite efficent on trying to get back to us on a problem so id like to know if its something i can find out on my side!

    do i need an app to tell me or can i install a program on my server to check the web addresses?

    ive never really looked into this untill now!

    Hope some one can help me

    Thanks

    There's an app called Network Log on Android that will tell you which IP addresses your apps are trying to reach:

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ode.networklog

    I use an app called Network Log to find out the URLs, but it does require root privileges.

    Edit. What he said.

    Theres also a packet capture app. Just a word of warning android doesn't like authentication with proxies.

    Also some apps completely ignore the proxy setting.

    Im not too confident in rooting my phone. I have a samsung galaxy s3. If I was to root it. Is there any hidden nasties I should look out for?
