Hi all,

I'm looking at sniffing the requests that various BitTorrent clients make in order to improve my prototype client. I started off using Wireshark but I can't get it to reliably recognize BitTorrent messages. Interestingly the messages my prototype BitTorrent client generates are parseable in Wireshark while those interchanged between Transmission are not.
