[closed] TCP payload decoder


Dear wireshark help team,

I have a TCP payload packet and I would like to decode the data that is in there, how do I do this ?

The data in ASCII format is as follows: [email protected];uPe|'?f(A/:($N_C4;G4xc!X4F>@2w3

Thanks in advance.

I doubt we can help you here - to decode TCP payloads you should at least know what protocol this is. If it's anything using SSL/TLS -> forget it. If its proprietary -> forget it.

it is just HTTP I am sending out, but I think my embedded configuration is not correct, thats why it is jibberish.

"jibberish". So how would you expect this data to be 'decoded' then?

Well I just figured out that the messages was not encoded but that what I am sending is not correct, so sorry for posting this question.
