Lori,

Thanks for the advice.

I found the string in the "recent" history file.  Removing is did not
help.
That file is generated when Wireshark is closed.  Wireshark is still
starting up with the invalid capture filter.

I went in and tried to set the defaul filter to one that exists, but
wireshark started up with the invalid filter selected.

Do you have any other ideas?

No: Wireshark is single threaded.  (Making it multi-threaded wouldn't be
easy, either.)

You might be able to use masks to help narrow it down. For example:

ip.addr==192.168.0.0/16

Bob

I know that this card allows you to see vlan tags: CNet CNF401 

This is an older card 10/100 but it works.

Subject: [Wireshark-users] VLAN Tags?

 

I am connecting to and monitoring a port on a managed VLAN switch from a
Windows Vista machine.

 

Is there any way to capture the VLAN tags? I presume this may depend on
the Ethernet nic and driver. Is there a device/driver that I need to get
to support this?

 

I don't actually know if the monitoring port delivers the VLAN tags of
the packets it is monitoring. The switch is a ProCurve 2600-8-PWR.
Anybody know?

 

I do know that Wireshark can parse these. I used to capture vlan tags
when I was watching a VLAN being bridged across 802.11 with WDC.

 

Cheers, Bob

Hello all:


I am using the 1.2.1 Win32  build of Wireshark.   Earlier I was often
able 
to see a link in the Decoded packet frame refernces such as [Response in

frame: 12345] and [Request in frame: 1234] for most frames (for example,

if reviewing a fram containing a HTTP GET, there would be a link to the 
HTTP Response.  Very handy , and a nice alternative to the
conversational 
view and filter.


However, it seems I am no longer seeing those links anymore ---  and it
it 
wasn't for the documentation in section C.2, I would begin to think it
was 
all a lovely dream. 

I'm wondering if I may have inadvertanlty changes a preference or
setting 
that I am no longer seeing, or if that reference is only displayed under

certain circumstances. 

As a reference, I still see links for the re-assembled frames, as well
as 
in the SEQ/ACK  analysis

Any help in getting this functionality back would be very much 
appreciated!

The -k works like a charm, thanks.

Maybe we'll try this sometime. I'm not sure how rich the pcap
interface is, there is some information, such as channel to listen on,
that needs to be known in order to capture.

Cheers,
Sam

The current pcap interface splits the process of starting a live  
capture into:

	a call to create a capture handle;

	various calls to set various properties on the handle;

	a call to activate the handle.

There is currently not a call to set a channel on which to capture,  
but at some point one will be added to handle 802.11; such a call  
could be used on other network types.

Has anyone written a script to convert a Cisco FWSM dump format into a
test2pcap format so I can read them in Wireshark?

text2pcap -l 12 infile.txt outfile.pcap works like a champ when the
firewall
output is in valid format. Hand editing is tedious.

Here is a 3 step tcp handshake from the fwsm:
