IPV6 Subnets file


At this moment I can only assign a name to an IPv6 /128 address on the "hosts" file, what happens if I want to assign a name on Wireshark to a group of IPv6 based on the network /32, /48, /64, /112? Wireshark can do the capture and filter for IPv6 network, but it cannot assign a name to an specify network in IPv6 as we do with IPV4 using the "subnets" file? Any suggestion?.

Currently there is no such thing. If you want to have this feature you can either file an enhancement bug or create a change yourself.
