The trace with problem can be downloaded from the link below.

First, decode it as SSL.

And Frame#7 is supposed to be reassembled with Frame#6. However, Frame#7 only shows "TCP segment of a reassembled PDU".

Is it the issue with those two frames? Thanks.

What are the TCP Protocol Preference Allow subdissector to reassemble TCP streams or the SSL Preference Reassemble SSL records spanning multiple TCP segments settings? With those enabled, it reassembles for me (1.99.8).


Also need to disable the TCP Preference Do not call subdissectors for error packets. The frames after #7 all have TCP errors and passing them into the SSL dissector breaks it.

Grahamb, thanks for your reply. All those options have been enabled. The reassembly works with other traces but not this one. Thanks.

Grahamb, great. Now, it works after enabling, "Do not call subdissectors for error packets".
