I am trying to set up a proxy on my iPhone, so that I can view web traffic coming in and out of it. I've tried using a few tools such as Charles and Mitmproxy, but every time I set the HTTP Proxy for my wifi on my phone and open Safari, it just says that the network connection was lost.
I turned on the proxy, and set the proxy settings using the IP of my mac which I obtained like this
and then I set my HTTP proxy settings on my iPhone like this:
Then I try to use Safari and it says "Network Connection Lost." I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong or if the instructions I've been following are out of date for iOS 8. Any help would be appreciated!
Some other information that might be useful, I've tried this with a bunch of different proxy tools and the same issue has occurred with all of them, and I've tried changing the port I'm using the proxy on.
