Does anyone knows an alternative software of TrivialProxy for linux? iptables is not enough because I need a GUI.

Thanks in advance.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Did you look for a GUI interface to iptables ? There are several such things. – Basile Starynkevitch Oct 24 '12 at 16:17

As far as I understood, TrivialProxy is a network activity logger.

For this purpose I can recommend using full-featured network sniffer like Wireshark.

Not it only can show HTTP,POP3 and other staff supported by TrivialProxy but many more protocols.

It is a GUI program, no fear.

In comparison with TrivialProxy:

  • it is more complicated but also much more powerful
  • you have not to redirect the traffic, because being sniffer it just intercepts it.
