Hi guys,

Where is the Artnet dissection in the new version? I use wireshark for lighting networks who use ArtNet and sACN.

ACN is implemented but Artnet is gone. In older versions of wireshark artnet where implemented but no ACN. Now ACN in but ArtNet out.

How can I put ArtNet back?

There is still an ArtNet dissector in the code base but you need to do "decode as" on an UDP packet containing an ArtNet packet for it to be invoked. It will also be heuristically detected if the first 8 bytes are "/* Check the 8 byte header "Art-Net\0""
