I need help analyzing network captures of traffic between two programs that establish a connection via localhost. Once the connection is established, program A sends JSON data to program B.
To date, I have been allowing the handshake to occur, then closing program B and opening my own node.js localserver to listen on the same port as program B. Program A then sends data that my program receives and interprets.
I would like to allow our program to complete the initial handshake with Program A so we can avoid launching/closing Program B to begin with.
Please have relevant experience. Captures are attached and relatively small. I can provide more captures if needed.
Your deliverables include:
- pseudocode explaining the handshake
- node.js code that successfully completes the handshake.
Look forward to working with you!
