Wireshark-users: Re: [Wireshark-users] Monitoring traffic to & frm a website.
Do you need to really see the packets or do you just need to see the https request/response data. If so you could use a couple of applictions including fiddler, paros, and web scarab. These will allow you to see what is going on at the application level between server and client.

You can also use curl from a command line and walk the page. If you a
windows user, it is available under CYGWin.

If you posess the private key that is used on the secure server, then
you can make a trace and decrypt the traffic.

If the key is not in your posession (which I suspect, otherwise you
would most probably also know what the server is sending and expecting),
then you could use Firefox with the "HttpFox" plugin to look inside the
secure traffic.

Hope this helps,
Cheers,
Sake
