Wireshark-users: [Wireshark-users] Diameter [Malformed Packet: GTPv2]

Hello  guys ,

         I am very confused that I got "Malformed Packet: GTPv2" in every Diameter (CCR) in version 1.6 . 

   I tried multiple versions of wireshark , I have found that  for the same err_sample.pcap which I have already attached , there is

   no such annoying prompt in version 1.2.16 .   I read the WireShark manual , there is some explanation in this URL.


   To my understanding , mostly there is something wrong in the packet content . Another proof is that other diameter packet is working

   perfectly with wireshark 1.6.1 version .

   Here comes my question :    does this   AVP(20600)  finally caused the "malformed packet" prompt because there is no data in this AVP?

   Or is there anything wrong with the CCR packet content ? 

   FYI : Diameter Server Port is 6555 ,  and this server connects the multiple clients.
