Wireshark-users: Re: [Wireshark-users] Question on Ethereal

Thanks for the response and good call.  While I'm having trouble
compiling Wireshark (WS) on the Linux box, I was able to download (with
the lan folks permission) and install WS on my Windows workstation and
take a look at the capture file.  You are correct; the packets are not
flagged as malformed on the latest WS release.  I think the lan folks
will now replace Ethereal with WS on their sniffer.

Thanks again!
