Wireshark does not currently have a dissector for Multicast Transport Protocol (IP protocol number 92).

I see that the RFC is fairly old. My question (knowing nothing about MTP): is this protocol currently in use ?

In any case, you can submit an enhancement request at (with a capture file containing MTP packets).

Someone may then volunteer to create an MTP dissector.

Or: you can write and contribute a Wireshark dissector for MTP.
