No ther is no reliable way to determine which GSM_MAP version is supported other than reading the sources. In general we have tried to make it backwards compatible but realy old releases are more likely to have miss dissection then newer ones. 1.0.3 is quite old, you are much better off with 1.6 or the soon to be released 1.8 (1.8.rc (release candidate is available).

Now I have installed our System with Wire shark 1.6 Version. So,Is there any way to find out that which GSM_MAP version is supported.

I just want to confirm that either it supports ETSI TS 129 002 V10.6.0 (2012-04)SPEC or not?

Is it possible to find out through source code? Please let me know ASAP

That's great.Thanks for addressing this query.I will suggest that there should be an option in Wireshark-->Help notes from which user can know regarding protocol version and Release supported

Thanks a lot again.

I hope to see Wireshark version with ETSI TS 129 002 V10.6.0 (2012-04)
