Hi ,

On the wireshark GUI I have tried to filter using the keywords dhcp and ssdp for the DHCP and SSDP protocol but the wireshark throws an error message stating "dhcp" is not a protocol?
Can someone suggest something ?
Use "bootp".   DHCP is (more or less) a superset of BOOTP.  
The parsing of the dhcp components is done within the bootp 
Should we change the instances of "bootp" in the BOOTP/DHCP dissector to 
"dhcp"? This isn't the first time this has confused someone.
