I'm not familiar with the protocol, but it looks like all 512 are hard
coded into the dissector.  Does the bit-string need to be only 8 bits
long?  Do you have access to the standards documents by chance?


I figured it was something like that. I don't know that it *needs* to be only 8 bits, but it would be less confusing if it matched the text.

Unfortunately, I do not have the standards docs... sorry.
