I am having this strange issue tracking to capture packets being generate by ostinato to an interface:

No. Time Source Destination Protocol Length Info

  • 1 0.000000000 N/A N/A N/A 1396 Raw packet data

  • 2 1.000001373 N/A N/A N/A 1396 Raw packet data

The interface in question:


What can be causing this?

Thanks in advance.

Looks like output from packet-raw.c

Please add output of wireshark -v or Help->About Wireshark:Wireshark
Can you provide a small sample capture file? That would help to analyze what the dissection is doing.

(The screen display of N/A N/A N/A can be recreated with sample capture RawPacketIPv6Tunnel-UK6x.cap (libpcap) from the Wireshark Wiki. Disable IPv6 protocol so dissection stops at Raw packet data.)
