Hi,

Thanks in advance.

This is Deb, new to Wireshark. I am currently using Wireshark 1.12.3 on Windows 8.

I (Buy side) can capture FIX messages using tshark. Then I like to do some analysis on captured messages using lua. Depending on the outcome, can I send message(s) (or requests) to sell side using tshark?

If yes, one example please. Any reference to explore further is appreciated.

Once again, thank you very much for the time you have given.

Regards,

Deb

tshark/wireshark don't have any packet injection/sending functionality, so the answer to your question is: no, that's not possible with tshark/wireshark.

As Kurt mentions, this is not possible with tshark, but you might be able to find a workable solution to your problem using other tools, such as those listed on the Wireshark's Tools wiki page. Of those listed, scapy or netexpect might be of particular interest to you.
