Hi, everyone:

Today I have written a simple JAVA program to test communication between SSL client and server.

I run my client and server, and try to use Wireshark to capture the packets. But I could only see "TCP" instead of TLS/SSL in "protocol": alt text

And I just send a string (10 bytes) from client to server. I think the first packets are handshake packets. But why it doesn't show as "TLS/SSL"?

Any one could help me?

Thank you very much!

Because it's not on the standard port for SSL/TLS. You can add your port (12120):

Edit -> Preferences -> Protocols -> HTTP -> SSL/TLS Ports

Change it to: 443,12120

Thank you very much!
