Hi Guy Harris,
 
thanks for the clarification.
I was writing a function to read such 3 byte values and convert them to int. Unaware that uint24 field is supported in C (I have seen uint24 field only in wireshark).
Now I am using the uint24 type.
 
Regards,
Prashanth

If you mean that fields in that protocol other than the 3-byte field are big-endian, then...

...that means that the 3-byte field is probably also big-endian.
