I need to analyse the HTTP traffic. In this article we use the Microsoft Message Analyser.


  1. Depending on your bit version (32/64 bit) install the 32-bit or 64-bit application.
  2. After the installation start the Microsoft Message Analyzer. Navigate to Start Page and choose the option Firewall.

  3. The logging starts immediately. Click Stop and set up a filter.

    You can reduce the amount of data if you use filter.
    With the parameter *Address enter a IP-Address to listen to.
    Also you can set a port or protocol.

    Press Apply Filter.
    Example for a filter:
    (*Address ==
    (*Address == AND HTTP AND tcp.Port == 80

  4. Press Restart to start the logging.

Store logging
To store the recorded data navigate to File > Save As and choose the option  Filtered messages for Analysis Grid
and click the button Save.
The file will be stored with the suffix .matp.
