Hi! I have capture file with Abis packets over IUA/SCTP. But the Abis packets are decoded incorrectly because Q.921 SAPI values are used by default in DLCI Parameter of IUA packets. I can't find how to use the GSM SAPI values in DLCI Parameter of IUA packet.

How the Abis messages that contained in IUA packets can be correctly decoded?

Thank You!

I tried this for LAPD but it doesn't changes the SAPI settings for IUA and Abis packets still displayed incorrectly. So IUA needs it's own option for SAPI.
