I used wireshark to capture some traffic between a closed-program and a server.
The program request some URL with this format:
GET /m_back/page.php?a5bXBpYyBHYW1lcy0mYXBwdmVyc2lvxNzImcm5kdmFsPTEzNDQ4NTM2ODE= HTTP/1.1
User-Agent: My User Agent
Looks like the parameter is gzipped, but wireshark can not decoded it.
The answer from the server is coded with GZIP and wireshark can decoded it easily, I can see it under tab "uncompress entity body"
How can I unzip the passing parameter? It should be a XML-file o JSON-parameter . I have tried coping it to a plain .gz file and using gzip command, but it didn't work.
(with a little help from google Translate, sorry for my english)

Looks like it's base64 encoded. Likely to be a binary blob.
