After modifying the WIFI connection and adding your proxy host and port there, you should immediately be able to capture the HTTP/S traffic.
However, this kind of method is not always working since some mobile applications are using customized HTTP/S functionalities within the device.
So what you should do in order to capture all of the HTTP/S traffic from the mobile device without breaking you heads? it’s simple, use Vproxy!
Vproxy is a python script that built to quickly configure a PPTP VPN server that will redirect HTTP/S traffic to your favorite proxy instance host.
This script was built and test on Kali-Linux and should work on any linux distributionPrerequisites
pip install termcolor
Setup VPN server on localip and redirect traffic sent from the clients (80,443) to proxy 192.168.1.10:8080
$sudo python vproxy.py -localip 192.168.1.9 -phost 192.168.1.10 -pport 8080 -port 80,443
