Dear All, I am facing a problem in transferring data UDP data to a python application. I have an embedded system transmitting UDP packets to the PC. I can clearly recognize the packets with WS but my application cannot receive them. In WS I can check the headers and they are correct in each field. There is only one point that puzzles me. It seems that on the wire there are always 4 bytes more than the expected. Anyway WS doesn't complain about that. Does anyone have some opinions to share on this? Thanks a lot in Advance. MMM

You'll have to publish the capture on Cloudshark or some file sharing service (Dropbox, Google Drive), login-free, and edit your question with a link to it if you want some advice, and explain whether the extra 4 bytes are in the end of the packet or somewhere else.

And if the receiving application has an issue, a capture won't disclose that. In case of UDP with proprietary payload, you can use Wireshark only to analyse the contents of the packets.
