Data Encryption in BSPs

Taking Brian McKellar's advice, I downloaded an HTTP sniffer and used it to look at the "traffic" that BSPs were creating. Unfortunately, the HTML data which I want to see is encrypted! I know my sniffer is working correctly because I can see HTML on other web pages (such as www.msn.com) but not with BSP output!

What can I do to get around the encryption? In the header I see "content-encoding: gzip" which I guess is some industry standard, so that the decryption at the client does not need proprietary software. Still, I think this needs further explanation: Brian, would you care to talk about it?

    Hello Paul,

    gzip is not encryption, it is only compression.

    Use transaction SICF to deactivate the checkbox "Compression (if possible)".

    Just change your browser settings to use only HTTP/1.0. These checkboxes are somewhere under Tools>Options>Advanced.

    Gzip compression is only possible in HTTP/1.1.
