I was able to complete a dissector just by going through


particularly from Section II topics 6 to 9

You should go through initial part of the documentation ,above, to set up wireshark environment. You may find difficulties in here , then you have enough README  or this mailing list to come back. But dissector development is the easier part and should be pretty straight forward if you go through the sections I mentioned above.

So, basically I want to build a basic wireshark dissector and try to capture the packets using my own customised protocol name.
Example : I have a protocol of my own, lets name it as "foo" protocol. Now, I want to create a dissector for it like packet-<protocolname>.c and  packet-<protocolname>.h as source header files.

Underlying the protocol, I am capturing UDP packets. But if I set the capture filter as "foo", then I should be able to capture "foo" packets.
Could you please send me some good tutorials over the same?

I have already read the README.developer and README.pluggins docs.

And yes, I am adding a new protocol dissector in the wireshark source code itself and then building the environment and compiling.

Thanks and Regards,
