Hello Adele,
 
[email protected]> how  Wireshark works and decide a packet is an OICQ packet?
[email protected]> I mean, besides of the UDP port, are there any other ways for Wireshark
[email protected]> to categorise a packet to be an OICQ packet?
 
The most obvious (but maybe not easy for you) way to find this out is looking into source code.
If you are not familiar with C language, you can ask Secfire <[email protected]>,
the author if OICQ dissector.

Hello,

It seems that WireShark is able to recognise OICQ protocol.
See the following page :
http://www.wireshark.org/docs/dfref/o/oicq.html

May be this could help you.

Regards
Philippe

Subject: [Wireshark-dev] A simple question about wireshark: confusion about OICQ protocol analysis

Dear all,

 

Here I have a very detailed question and I would like to thank you all for your help in advance.

 

Some background information first:

 

Thunder is a very popular P2P file downloading software in China and it is not open sourced. Recently I have been doing some protocol analysis experiments about Thunder by Wireshark. Experiment descriptions are as follows:

 

Experiment 1 :  Close other applications and run Thunder------I will get a lot of packets with the protocol name as OICQ. (OICQ is a very popular IM soft ware in china but actually during this experiment I did not open it).

 

Experiment 2:  keeping all other setting unchanged, I  close Thunder, immediately after experiment 1---------Here I did not get any OICQ packets anymore.

 

Actually I have talk to some guys who work in OICQ company and according to them, Thunder and OICQ are competitors and there are not any co-operations between them.  So I am really confused that how I can capture OICQ packets from Thunder while the OICQ is not running.  Therefore, if it is possible, may I ask how  Wireshark works and decide a packet is an OICQ packet? I mean, besides of the UDP port, are there any other ways for Wireshark to categorise a packet to be an OICQ packet?

 

Actually I am really confused here and your help will be really appreciated for me.

 

Thank you in advance and best regards,

 

Adele JIA
