6.9. Go to a specific packet

You can easily jump to specific packets with one of the menu items in the Go menu.

6.9.1. The “Go Back” command

Go back in the packet history, works much like the page history in current web browsers.

6.9.2. The “Go Forward” command

Go forward in the packet history, works much like the page history in current web browsers.

6.9.3. The “Go to Packet” dialog box

Figure 6.10. The “Go To Packet” dialog box

ws goto packet

This dialog box will let you enter a packet number. When you press OK, Wireshark will jump to that packet.

6.9.4. The “Go to Corresponding Packet” command

If a protocol field is selected which points to another packet in the capture file, this command will jump to that packet.

As these protocol fields now work like links (just as in your Web browser), it’s easier to simply double-click on the field to jump to the corresponding field.

6.9.5. The “Go to First Packet” command

This command will simply jump to the first packet displayed.

6.9.6. The “Go to Last Packet” command

This command will simply jump to the last packet displayed.
