Sauce Connect Proxy Log

A Sauce Connect log file called sc.log will populate once you start using the program. The location of the sc.log on your computer will vary, depending on your OS. Here are some example directories:

  • Mac OS X: (DD Month) (Time) - Log file: /var/folders/72/tjnr5_fs4fvcb3csfjx4sw200000gn/T/sc.log

  • Linux (tested on Ubuntu 16.04.6): (DD Month) (Time) - Log file: /tmp/sc.log 

    For Mac OS X and Linux, sc.log will use a tmp folder.
  • Windows: (DD Month) (Time) - Log file: C:\Users\sauce_username\Downloads\sc-4.5.1-win32\sc-4.5.1-win32\sc.log

    For Windows, sc.log will use the current working directory.
