Hello everybody,

I am currently working on an AMQP pusblisher implementation and I am a bit confused. According to the specification of the protocol (, an AMQP value can also be a list. However, when I use a list as content of the AMQP value, Wireshark gives me the following error: Unexpected list type at frame position 28 of field "AMQP Value".

Therefore I would like to ask whether there is a known bug in the Wireshark dissector of the AMQP protocol. Note: my AMQP test subscriber from QPID is able to decode the sent message correctly.

Thank you for your reply in advance.

Best regards, Mario

Wireshark bugs are held in Bugzilla, so if it is known it will be listed there.

If you can't see a bug entry for the issue, please raise one attaching a capture that illustrates the problem.
