I am currently adding the legacy BT IUP protocol (ND1006:2007/05 and ND1104:2004/11) to our switch. I realize that this is an older protocol but it is still prevalent in the U.K. I use Wireshark for other protocol developments and wondered if you have a plug-in for this protocol.

Sorry, no, no one has ever written a dissector for IUP for Wireshark (or if they did they have not submitted it for inclusion in Wireshark).

If you're a programmer type you could always take on the project yourself--writing a basic dissector isn't that hard.

If you're not you could always open an enhancement request with some sample captures and links to the relevant specifications in case someone wants to take the project on. (Note that both a sample capture and the specs would be needed.) Though there are a lot of similar enhancement requests sitting out there (having not moved in years) so I'm not sure how much action yours would see...
