As you proxy your browser traffic through OWASP ZAP, chances are that you are annoyed by noise. That is by default browsers these days make a lot of requests to update version, update cache, addons update and what not. It get’s really difficult to focus on the website at hand when you have other sites cluttering your Sites and History tab.
The Global Exclude URL functionality was supposed to work and it did work partially.
There was a minor bug and that was fixed. A screen recording of the bug and the bug fix url below:
Global Exclude URL (beta) – after close and reopen does not pick up added regex for excluding URLs #3275
PROBLEM: When copying files from VMWare player to the host (Windows host in this case), you get “Cannot write to local file”.
SOLUTION: Make space. Clear temp and %temp% directories, on your operating system drive.
I was trying to copy 5 GB of files from my VMWare player guest OS Kali Linux to my Windows Host. VMWare player displays Copying file “part2.rar” from virtual machine and exits with “Cannot write to local file. Cancelling the file copy operation.”.
This knowledge base from vmware hints disabling tempfs in linux operating systems. https://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=2056353
I looked at the temp and %temp% windows directories and dicovered the below temp location where VMWarePlayer copies the files from the VM Guest, and from there it copies to the destination directory in the host OS.
My Operating System drive C: was full, and I had to clear the temp directories and free up some space to do 5 GB copy operation from WMWare Player Guest Kali Linux to Windows Host.
