Wireshark-dev: [Wireshark-dev] Protocol Export objects - New Dissector Development
Date: Wed, 25 Feb 2015 02:21:56 +0100 (CET)


I am writing to inform that, some time ago from now, I implemented the "Export FTP Object" functionality. I still have two issue:
when saving large files Wireshark crashes
when clicking the "Save all" button the Wireshark - Export - FTP objects list freezes in "Non Responding" mode.

After fixing both issues I will do some cleanup; then I will be able to commit my code to the repository. I won't be able to take this remaining steps before 10 days' time though.

Regarding future work with Wireshark, I have been thinking of adding the Export Object functionality to IMAP, POP or SMTP. Are there other protocols for which this functionality is sought after by the uses community? If yes, which are they?

Are there any simple protocols which need a dissector to be added to Whireshark. I thought of some; but all of them seem to already supported in Wireshark.

Are there any protocol you can suggest? I would like to develop the dissector for a simple protocol, and then with the acquired experience maybe try something more complex.

Please let me know. Thank you very much in advance.
