I am a rookie when it comes to building a dissector . However I was able to build a dissector over TCP. I use port 80 to identify the packet. The packet which is not under my protocol comes under TCP but not HTTP. How did I rectify this problem. I would also like to 'point' it to any other protocol I desire. Is this possible?

Thanks in advance

I.e., you have a protocol that runs over TCP, using port 80?

Is that protocol based on HTTP, such as, for example, IPP is, with a particular medium type assigned to it, or is it some protocol that is not based on HTTP and, for some reason, uses port 80 anyway?
