    Hello,
    I'm looking for a tool to analyse web http requests and responses between IE and IIS. Did you know such utility to see in detail the content of header, body (data) of requets and responses ?
    Thanks a lot.

    I don't know such a tool from the top of my head. Are you using ASP.NET? If so, you could also easily wrap a module together which logs the requests/responses. Should take about 15 minutes to wrap that together.

    You can use a quick tool that I wrote which will make an HTTP request to the address you give it and show you the headers returned as well as the response time.

    Agree with a lot of the suggestions  mentioned above regarding looking at headers especially where the requests are typical GET requests. I also found Microsofts NETMON (ships with Server 2003) extremely useful for debugging / understanding whats going on when your doing web service work and your running HTTP POSTs (in the sense of SOAP over HTTP or any protocol for that matter).  Its lower level but extremely useful when you need to know whats going on, or looking into latencies, TCP nagling etc.
