Newbie: REST POST to localhost (Visual Studio Debugger running C#) gets changed to GET to other port


Apologies for newbie level of this post.

This has me foxed becuase it only happens on localhost, if I send a PUT to a version of my API deployed on IIS or Kestrel then this problem doesn't occur.

But I was hoping to be able to run tests on my code without having to go through the rigmarole of deploying it.


So I fire up the debugger in Visual Studio (2020)... and run the API which normally resides on port 5020 for me (http)

Then I try to get SoapUI (5.4.0) to send a PUT to http://localhost:5020/mystuff .... only to have it fail..


The Raw output reads as below.. it looks to me like it changes the PUT request to a GET and sends it to port 5021 .. 

This happens whether I have app.UseHsts() in my code or not...


I have read in a few places that this kind of thing was fixed in 5.3 of SOAPUI but I may be confused...

I also tried turning Follow Redirects to false but that doesn't appear to make a difference...


Thanks in advance for any help...
