Reconfiguring a Web Browser for Recording

You must reconfigure a Web browser to use ZebraTester for recording Web surfing sessions. This means that the Web browser must be reconfigured in such a way, that the HTTP/S traffic flows over the local Proxy 127.0.0.1 by using the TCP/IP port 7997.

You can use the same Web browser product for recording load tests and for using the Web Admin GUI, or you can use two different Web browser products – one for recording load tests and another for the Web Admin GUI.

If you use only one Web browser product for recording and for the Web Admin GUI, you must exclude your localhost 127.0.0.1 from the Web browser proxy configuration because the usage of the (local) embedded Web Admin Server must not flow into the recorded Web surfing session.

Hint: You should undo this special Web browser proxy configuration after the successful recording of a Web surfing session, in order that you can surf again without ZebraTester. The proxy configuration of the Web browser is not needed for the execution of load tests (recording only).
