unable to add a plugin to wireshark

asked 2018-05-09 19:53:46 +0000

Hi,

I have been trying to add a custom plugin for an internal protocol that my company uses , and I chanced upon this example online https://www.mvijayasekhar.me/how-to-w...

However, despite the files myproto.so and myproto.la being created and being linked (with a warning for not being compatible on all system), I find that after I start wireshark, the plugin is not found

1) I do start the local version of wireshark using "sudo ./wireshark", so it is not an earlier installed version 2) The Analyze->Enabled Protocols option in the GUI doesn't show my custom protocol

I would be highly grateful if someone more knowledgeable could point out as to where I am going wrong.

regards Tej

Does Wireshark find it if you start it withoutsudo?

Where exactly did you put the plugin?

Hi Jeff

I get the same result when I start without the sudo as well. The protocol that I am trying to dissect does not show up as part of the analyzed protocols in Analyze->Enabled Protocols Is there any additional step we need to do to ensure that shared library is linked correctly ?

Sorry, it seems I don't get email notifications from this site anymore.

So where did you put the plugin? Does it match the plugin location(s) specified in About→Folders? I have a vague memory that the location may have changed recently...
