Hello Folks, I'm new to this forum and an avid user of Wireshark Packet Analyzer. The problem that I'm facing is a very generic yet it would be of immense help if somebody who has a knowledge on this can answer. I'm able to see the UDP protocol connection established between the Source and Destination but when i try to send the intended packets in the buffer location in the code, I'm unable to get the specific bytes. I can research a lot on the internet about solutions but those would be very broad to start with until somebody with an experience in answering what could be the probable reasons that my packets in the network are getting lost. I get data from all over the network. I get zeroes in the buffer section of packet location. Please guide.

UDP does not have a connection establishment, it's connectionless. So what do you see on the network, between Source and Destination related to this?

What do you mean 'I'm unable to get the specific bytes'? You don't see them in Wireshark, or not on the Destination node? Are they even transmitted from the Source?
