Does anybody know of the best way to actually view HTTP response headers from a request against a particular URL? Would Telnet be the best option? Is there another command / tool that's better?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Telnet is good. Wireshark or other packet capture/analysis tools (tcpdump) are also good for viewing a web session.

    HI,

    Try the httpfox Firefox extension to view all HTTP requests and responses initiated from the web browser in the interval I specify (by pressing the start-recording and the stop-recording buttons). httpfox presents the data in a structured way in which I can quickly find the request I am interested in. It nicely complements LiveHTTPHeaders.
