Hi Forum, I want to analyse the connectivity between two hosts. Collected pcap trace for the same. Now need to check whether connection has been established or not.

Can someone help how do i track this?

Thank you, Br: Srinivas Vandanapu.

Now need to check whether connection has been established or not.

well, just view the 'conversations' and if the two systems are talking to each other, you should see some traffic

Statistics -> Conversations -> IPv4 [or TCP or UDP tab]

Look for the two IP addresses in one line.

Another option: use a display filter

ip.addr eq x.x.x.x and ip.addr eq y.y.y.y

Where x.x.x.x and y.y.y.y are the IP addresses of the two hosts. If you see any frames, after you apply the filter, there is communication between the two.
