I'am investigating some issue about Diameter and HSS (AAA). In wireshark I keep having: Command Code: 506 Unknown

The AVP 506 seem to be related to Mobile-Node-Identifier source (section 5.6) I tried to add this in the wireshark file dictionnary.xml but it seem it doesn't work :( <avp name="Mobile-Node-Identifier" code="506" mandatory="must" may-encrypt="no" protected="mustnot" vendor-bit="mustnot" vendor-id="TGPP"> <type type-name="UTF8String"/> </avp>

It's a command code not an AVP and probably a proprietarry one as it's not assigned by IANA. If you know what it is add it after <command name="IKEv2-SK" code="329" vendor-id="None"/> using that format.
