View SOAP message sent by SOAP Toolkit 3.0 to https server (server certificate), and through a proxy

Hi There,

I will be using SOAP Toolkit 3.0 in VB6 to connect to a web service that has a server certificate (SSL), and I am connecting to the server via a proxy on my end.

Is there any way to view the SOAP message that is being sent?  I dont believe that I can use the Trace Utility (because the connection is over SSL, and I am connecting via a proxy), and i guess Ethereal is no good to me because the contents of the packets are encrypted.  
Any ideas?

    I use HTTP-analyser from to view data in and out of our HTTPS webservices. This has been a lifesaver to me several times now.

    Hope this helps,

    there're various browser plug-ins to inspect the traffic
    I'd use Mozilla/Firefox with LiveHttpHeader
