Wireshark-users: Re: [Wireshark-users] ODD SMB packets
Tim,

I think, if you have responsibility for solving the problem, you are going to need to know more about how it is setup. Also if you can capture at the client end (preferably from a port-mirrored switch or even the client itself) you will get a much better idea of if delays, protocol issues are occurring (from the point of view of the client).

Subject: Re: [Wireshark-users] ODD SMB packets

Haven't seen these before, but I would have two questions:-

1. Is this traffic resulting from normal file sharing activity or some other application that uses SMB as a protocol?
2. If you are not capturing directly at the client or server, is there some packet mangling appliance (especially a WAN accelerator) between your packet capture and the client or server.

I am looking at a performance issue for a customer and looking at some SMB traffic with path names that make no sense IE -   ?\200????       @@???\217         @@???? (best I can tell there are no “real” paths in the whole capture)
In looking at the “Query_Path_Into” Parameters I see the reserved field is set to 0x03534E46 or SNF text (see below), best I understand this field should be 0 so how did it get populated. SNF could be cisco SNF however I have no way of confirming.
Any thoughts? Anyone see something like this before?

Thanks
Tim
