Hello Team,

May i know if latest wireshark supports to decode vxlan dummy-l2 tunnel encap packets?

Why i ask this because i cannot see vxlan header and upper layer packet content in 3.2.6 release. in my packets capture vxlan uses udp dst port 65330. even i change vxlan/vxlan-gpe dst port to 65530 in wireshark vxlan protocol preference. but i still could not decode vxlan packet. is there any workaround could let me decode this kind of vxlan packets?

appreciate any help.

packets capture:

Best Regard, Vincent

Using both setting VXLAN protocol preference or using Decode As... and selecting UDP port 65530 as VXLAN does seem to do the job. Are you sure you have the VXLAN protocol dissection enabled?
