I have created a plugin for Wireshark for the NetScalar NNM protocol. Now I have compiled the source code successfully. I want to capture NNM packets using this wireshark. So when I open the application, do I need to do anything to register the plugin? The protocol is not identified by wireshark when I run it on a NNM trace.

Any help??

Thanks and Regards,

When coded correctly and placed where Wireshark looks, there's no further action needed from you.

You can check if Wireshark loaded your dissector, by looking at the About dialog box, at the Plugins tab. Or you can enter your protocol filter name in the display filter edit box. It will turn green if it's registered correctly.
