Unable to record mobile protocol using 12.50V Vugen

we are trying to record a mobile application using HP-load runner. And getting below error messages.

Can you please suggest here.


Steps followed for mobile recording:-

  1. Installed proxy.cer on both laptop and device
  2. Configured same WI-FI on both laptop and device
  3. Configured WI-FI IP address to device


Error messages:-

Re: Unable to record mobile protocol using 12.50V Vugen


SSPI related messages are usually related to security & permission issues.

I suggest the following:

  • Verify you are running Vugen as an Administrator (i.e. right click -> Run As Administrator)
  • Verify there is no FW rule that is preventing outbound access from the Vugen machine
  • Try recording a different application and see that recording works
  • If that also fails, and you are running on an Android OS, consider using tPacketCapture application to create a pcap file and convert it later on to a Vugen script.

Good Luck,

Thanks for your time to reply. 

I tried running as admin and I am getting an error message

"exception is caught during proxy start, message=Only one usage of each socket address (protocol/network address/port) is normally permitted"


Currently, I am trying to record in fiddler. Still not able to record the same.
