can wireshark write files to Alcatel DMX 1665 via the LNW2 card?

asked 2020-08-12 20:13:24 +0000

Our company uses the old Wavestar 25.0.06 CIT software to connect and write files to Alcatel DMX 1665 units via the LNW2 card. Is Wireshark able to perform this same task?

Not sure of your question, Wireshark is a Packet Analyzer than can save capture files (and export things from the capture files), it doesn't send things over the network, unless the file destination is a network mounted share.

No. As @grahamb notes, Wireshark is a packet analyzer, not a tool for managing Alcatel-Lucent/Nokia networking devices such as data multiplexors for telephone service providers to use to handle their metropolitan networks; it has no knowledge of Alcatel-Lucent DMX 1665 data multiplexors at all and, in particular, it has no knowledge of how to upload (control? configuration? firmware/software?) files.

(Note, by the way, that most people who use this site are probably unfamiliar with all of the Alcatel-Lucent/Nokia hardware and software you mention, and would have no idea what you're talking about. I only found out by doing some Web searches, finding the documentation to which I linked; if you're going to ask a question about a topic somewhat specialized to network managers at telcos/PTTs, it's probably best to give a lot more detail, even if it's just explaining what an "Alcatel DMX 1665" and the "LNW2 card" in it does, and what the "Wavestar 25.0.06 CIT software" does.)
