📋 Notes

  • As default, httpx checks for HTTPS probe and fall-back to HTTP only if HTTPS is not reachable.
  • For printing both HTTP/HTTPS results, no-fallback flag can be used.
  • Custom scheme for ports can be defined, for example -ports http:443,http:80,https:8443
  • favicon,vhost, http2, pipeline, ports, csp-probe, tls-probe and path are unique flag with different probes.
  • Unique flags should be used for specific use cases instead of running them as default with other probes.
  • When using json flag, all the information (default probes) included in the JSON output.
  • Custom resolver supports multiple protocol (doh|tcp|udp) in form of protocol:resolver:port (eg udp:127.0.0.1:53)
  • Invalid custom resolvers/files are ignored.
