Tried to log some CanOpen traffic using wireshark, but the traffic is only shown as standard "CAN" traffic. The same happens when loading the example pcap file from the wiki (

  • Tried Wireshark 1.12.3 and 1.8.2 (Stock Debian stable)
  • Can't force using "Analyze -> Decode as", this option is greyed out

Anyone an Idea how to tell wireshark to dissect the data as CANopen on top of CAN instead as "just" CAN?

Thanks for your help!

Go to the protocol preferences for CAN and set the "Next level protocol" to "CANopen protocol".
