Hello,

in my LUA protocol dissector there could be a specific packet type that says an IP/UDP/SIP packet follows:

  if S8HR_pckt_type==3 then
    -- S8HR IMS_SIGNALLING_INFORMATION
    -- Decode inner IP x IMS_SIGNALLING_INFORMATION
    Dissector.get("ip"):call(buffer(offset):tvb(), pinfo, tree)
    pinfo.cols["protocol"] = "[S8HR-IMSSIG] " .. tostring(pinfo.cols["protocol"])
    pinfo.cols.info:prepend("IMSSIG: ")
    return
  end

I'm wondering if it could be possible to extract some SIP information (like sip.Call-ID if present) to enrich my custom layer, ideally something like:

...
-- ideal code I'm looking for:
local sip_callID_field = Field.new("sip.Call-ID")
nested_sip_pkt = Dissector.get("ip"):call(buffer(offset):tvb(), pinfo, tree)
local finfo = sip_callID_field(nested_sip_pkt)
s8hr_tree:append_text(finfo)
...

Any simple way to extract wireshark-known elements buried in the nested layers returned by Dissector.get("ip") ?

Thank you! A.

Hello,

I just realized that it is simple as adding the Field.new just after the Proto(...) definition:

version = "v1.07n"
S8HR_proto = Proto ("s8hr", "S8HR [" .. version .. "]")
local sip_callID_field = Field.new("sip.Call-ID")

Then the "local finfo = sip_callID_field()" get populated with the value (when available):

  if S8HR_pckt_type==3 then
    -- S8HR IMS_SIGNALLING_INFORMATION
    -- Decode inner IP x IMS_SIGNALLING_INFORMATION
    Dissector.get("ip"):call(buffer(offset):tvb(), pinfo, tree)
    local finfo = sip_callID_field()
    if (finfo ~= nil) then
      print(tostring(finfo))
    end
    pinfo.cols["protocol"] = "[S8HR-IMSSIG] " .. tostring(pinfo.cols["protocol"])
    pinfo.cols.info:prepend("IMSSIG: ")
    return
  end

in fact LUA console does show now:
