> My nane is Bongani, I'm working as an Intern for this big company. I'm using wireshark to dissect netwok packets, since I don't have much experience I started to search for any example that might help me to write my first plugin/dissector. after I come across AMIN (http://www.codeproject.com/KB/IP/custom_dissector.aspx ( http://www.codeproject.com/KB/IP/custom_dissector.aspx )) Plugin I thought its some thing that I can use as guide, after I successfully installed and compile wireshark I started to write AMIN plugin following instructions on the link above. my problem is that when I run wireshark I don't see any amin packets being captured on GUI while at the bottom of wireshark window I could see that the is something taking place. so please can some one tell me what am I doing wrong.

Hi Bongani,

I used the same link initially, its good to start, you can read the
Wireshark Dev guide which explains dissection in more detail here:
and compare with the code you have to see whats wrong.

P.S. Do you have a pcap file with AMIN packets or you are capturing
on an interface where AMIN packets traverse?
