Re: how to decode winsocket script

Hi Nishant,

About your question regarding windows socket script, you need to know that this type of protocol is a very low level of protocol that captures TCP trafic after creating a Winsock Vuser script, you can view the recorded buffers as raw data or as a snapshot. This type of script is always in this form and it very hard to interpret the requests/responses but you can guide yourself using this guides:
