Wireshark-users: [Wireshark-users] Using LTE-MAC over UDP heuristic

From: Raju Udava <>

This is what I tried out, but wasnt able to see MAC parsed information:
a) Enabled mac-lte protocol option in "Enabled Protocols"
b) Enabled "Try heuristic sub-dissectors first" option for UDP
c) Created a .out file using text2pcap, with dummy UDP header.
d) UDP paylaod was started with "mac-lte" tag followed by information as specified in packet-mac-lte.h
When I opened the output file on wireshark, I couldn't see MAC protocol information & packet was still being displayed as UDP.
Please let me know if I need to use any specific UDP ports? or If I am missing out to enable any option?
If anyone has sample catapult 2000 file for MAC-LTE, please post.

text2pcap.exe -u 99,99 input.txt output.txt
Opened output.txt in wireshark. It was showing just as a normal packet.
Thanks in advance.
