      I want to know how can we get the list of URLs/IPs the website is getting connected, i have made following small script but it is not able to collect all the links which are mentioned in the javascripts etc


      $path = Get-Content -Path ‘C:\URL Internal Links Scanner\URLlist.txt’
      $path2 = “C:\URL Internal Links Scanner\output.csv”

      [int]$i = 0
      Foreach ($URL in $path)
      $a = Invoke-WebRequest -Uri $URL
      $links=$a.Links | Where-Object {$_.href -notlike “*$url*”} |select href
      write-host “`n”
      $output = $URL +”`t”+ $links.href +”`t”+ $csp
      $output | Out-File $path2 -Append

      The links collection in the object returned by Invoke-WebRequest is just a list of clickable links. This does not include all of the various ways a page can cause that browser to access a remote URL. You need a network monitoring tool to see what is actually happening. The easiest tool that you probably already have is the Developer Tools in Chrome. There is a network view in the tool that shows you all the URLs access when a page is loaded.
