MMS

the

ethereal

| m-notification-ind over HTTP

Umm... which version of Ethereal do you use? Dissection for multipart
and for encapsulated media types (the PAP push-message XML document
and the MMS packet) are dissected for some time already.

| What do I need to do so ethereal dissects this protocol? I assume I

body
| part since one already exists, but how do I hook it in so that it
finds
| it in the body part of the HTTP post?

Maybe you did not enable reassembly in HTTP (or TCP), or the HTTP
Content-Length header is missing, or the multipart is incorrectly
encapsulated.

If you can disclose a sample capture, I will inspect it and provide
you feed-back on the possible issues.

Best regards,
