The wireshark code doesn't interpret all the tags present in the sniffer capture (.pkt). Where can I find the description of each tag present in such kind of file? Thanks in advance.

Please take a look at the PeekRdr Sample Application and the included documentation.

Note that, to quote that page, "You must be a MyPeek member to download our extensibility solutions. Click here to learn more about the benefits of membership and find out how to sign up for free."

I don't know whether you end up, in effect, signing an NDA for the information you get from that documentation.

There's also a reverse-engineered list of tags that was used for the "tagged *Peek" file reading code; it's not necessarily a complete list.

yes, that's odd. You can create an account, but you cannot download PeekRdr without a support contract.

As the OP apparently has access to a *.pkt file, chances are that he/she also owns a copy of Airopeek and then he/she may also have a support contract. Then he/she could be able to download that file and tell us if there is any NDA ralated to the file format.
