Hello Guys,

I am trying to extract 3GPP_User_Location_Info from Radius messages. However in this instance it is not extracting info correctly

$ tshark -v TShark 1.10.2 (SVN Rev 51934 from /trunk-1.10)

tshark -T fields -e radius.Calling_Station_Id -e radius.3GPP_User_Location_Info -e radius.3GPP_IMEISV -e radius.Framed-IP-Address -E header=y -E separator=, -E quote=d -r Nikola_TEST_cap.pcap | head

radius.Calling_Station_Id,radius.3GPP_User_Location_Info,radius.3GPP_IMEISV,radius.Framed-IP-Address "6149891xxxx",,"3598220413753808","" "6145563xxxx",,"3598220423540908",""

For some reason the 3GPP-User-Location-Id AVP doesn’t get extracted by tshark, although Wireshark shows/decodes the AVP just file.

I upgraded my copy of Wireshark on the Mac to the latest but still seeing the same issue. The AVP is listed in the dictionary and in tshark –G fields so suspect it may be a bug? Other 3GPP fields are extracted ok.

I can confirm that behavior. Support for 3GPP-User-Location-Info has been added in Bug 7474. Please add a comment with your enhancement request to Bug 7474.

Hello Kurt,

we are running a later version 1.10.2 and the 3GPP-User-Location-Info field is not displaying at all in tshark

Works with 0.99.7 Windows version and TShark 0.99.7 Somewhere between the version 1.10.2 and 0.99.7 there is a bug.

Maybe I was not clear . What I am trying to say is that below works for

TShark 0.99.7 but not for 1.10.2 version

% tshark -T fields -e radius.Calling_Station_Id -e radius.3GPP_User_Location_Info -E header=y -E separator=, -E quote=d -r TEST_cap.pcap | head radius.Calling_Station_Id,radius.3GPP_User_Location_Info "61498913","01:05:f5:10:55:50:16:5a" "6145563","01:05:f5:10:13:50:2e:4d" "614193","01:05:f5:10:10:50:00:eb"
