Wireshark-dev: Re: [Wireshark-dev] New in Wireshark making a dissector

Hi Javi,

I wrote a dissector for the PCoIP protocol in the LUA language.  It's OK but it would be far better written in C (as suggested by Alexis).  You can find the LUA source code and some background information regarding PCoIP at https://community.tribelab.com.  Full details of the PCoIP header are not available - it's a proprietary protocol - but it uses the ESP which is useful for tracking sequence numbers.  This means that you could write a very simple dissector that dumped the hex for the PCoIP Transport Header and then handed off to the existing Wireshark ESP header.  It would be a great introduction to writing dissectors.

Best regards...Paul

I am a studient at a University (UPNA).
My challenge is make a dissector for a another protocol that is not now dissected. I´m a noob, so I´m reading Developer´s guide. If you have any advice, suggestion of protocol... or whatever, please tell me!

Javi Guembe.
