Try to open the following link in a browser

The file does not exist and that's why reports the following error message doesn't have enough data

As a quick fix, you could change the perl script wireshark/tools/

from this:

my $iana_port_url = "";

to this:

my $iana_port_url = "";

Difference: service-name-port-numbers -> service-names-port-numbers

The better fix, would (probably) be to update your copy of the source code to the current release.

Sorry,Dear Kurt,i just made a mistake,the error info actually is 'fetching doesn't have enough data',the website can be open in my browser,but it still returns error in the compiling process.

O.K., then the perl script was unable to load the file (maybe due to a proxy)?

can you start the script manually and then watch the Download with Wireshark?

/usr/bin/perl /home/wireshark_dissect/wireshark-1.6.4-output-formated/tools/

Is the script able to fetch the whole (right) file?
