File format for SS7 PC Name Resolution [closed]

Which file is used to load the SS7 Point Codes when you enabled "Resolve SS7 PCs" under Name Resolution preferences, and what format is the file in?

This does not appear to be in the online help, or Wireshark's "B.3 Configuration Files" with all the other name resolution files/formats.

Thanks,

Geoff

Which file is used to load the SS7 Point Codes when you enabled "Resolve SS7 PCs" under Name Resolution preferences

It's called "ss7pcs", and is in the same directory as other name resolution files.

and what format is the file in?

Each line is of the form:

{Network indicator in decimal}-{Point Code in decimal} {Host name}

with the network indicator/point code indicator separated by white space (tabs and spaces) from the host name. For example:

2-1234 MyPointCode1

This does not appear to be in the online help, or Wireshark's "B.3 Configuration Files" with all the other name resolution files/formats.

It certainly belongs everywhere that the other name resolution files are documented; please file a bug on this on the Wireshark Bugzill.
