Hi Jeff,

  Thanks for the reply. I will visit those links and download as required.


One question which is still outstanding from original email:

1.  How do I determine or identify in the RHEL 5.5 version of wireshark (i.e., wireshark-1.0.8-1.el5_3.1), if it supports HNBAP and RUA Protocols.


Your assistance and input to this question will be greatly appreciated.


Look forward to your response.

You can find the source tarballs in the same place as the rest of the





Or you can get it via subversion:

The INSTALL file in the source distribution is a good place to start.

Otherwise, just run ./configure and see if it finds what it needs.
