I'm new to wireshark and trying to get more information on how to get the full cookies that isn't "truncated"? The snaplen is not enabled.

example: [truncated] Cookie: OAX=VDdXBE21tLMAAsVW; member_type=0; __utma=70287432xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx etc

In advance thank you!

Regards C

Hi, Here [truncated] just means that the display of the field is trunkated, as in limited to 240 characters. The complete field is present and you should see it highlighted in the bytes pane. Regards Anders

Right click on the field and copy-value will copy the non-truncated value.
