NSH protocol support



Is there any dissector for NSH (network service header) protocol? I can see some bug being raised but I could not find the desired files. Can anyone help me how do I see the NSH packets in wireshark.

Thanks Saurav

One Answer:


A dissector was added in Feb 16, see this item in the bug tracker. Some test captures are available on that item.

This will currently be available in automated builds, or builds made from master. For regular releases, you'll have to wait for the release of 2.2.x.
