Why in v 2.0 did you have removed “dns resolve” on the right click in the single IP address entry?


In version 1.12 and earlier I can right click on layer 3 IP address in Packet Details and click on "resolve dns address", but this fictionality is missing on version 2.0. Why?

One Answer:


It probably got lost in the conversion to Qt. Please file a bug for this on the Wireshark Bugzilla so that its absence is recorded.

I've been missing this feature for a while, just found it is still present in the GTK version of 2.4 and likely the earlier 2.x versions.

Then please file a bug. We're far more likely to address a bug, or missing feature, if it's in the bug database.

And then put a link to that bug, giving the bug number as the link text, in a comment here.
