Hi all,
We need to implement HSRPv2 protocol.
Currently ethereal supports HSRPv1 ( packet-hsrp.c).
The problem is HSRPv1 acts on a different multicast address and HSRPv2 acts on a different multicast address.  Hence HSRPv2 can not be made a part of the packet-hsrp.c. So how to direct ethereal to give the packets that it captures on the multicast address for HSRPv2 to give to our HSRPv2 dissector?
I dont know how ethereal is made to give the packets to application based on the ip address. Becos it runs in promiscous mode it will just capture every packet that comes its way. But the real problem is that we need to make it give the packets to HSRPv2 protocol whenever it receives the packets directed to the multicast address for HSRPv2)
Regards,
Vanita
