Are user preferences supported for plugins?


I have written a simple dissector plugin and now I would like to make port ranges configurable for the user. I have not found how to do this.

Is it possible to have user preferences for a dissector plugin?

One Answer:


Sure, a number of the "standard" plugins do this, e.g. gryphon, mate, opcua, unistim, so you can look at what they do. Opcua is probably closest to what you want. I don't think preferences are any different for plugins as opposed to built-in dissectors.
