Why aren't ITS messages supported yet?

Hi there!

Hopefully someone can help me.

In the development builds I can dissect ITS messages to see the message id, which protocol is used (eg. 2 for CAM).

But I cannot see further than that. Higher protocols aren't supported and the data remains a pile of rubbish.

When looking in the source code I would find that there is at least intended support for CAM and DENM.

So my question is: What's the hold up? Why isn't it working yet?

Best regards

PS: I tried several builds on two machines and no configuration could dissect said messages properly.

The short answer to that is: You haven't written the dissector code yet. As this is a community project volunteers provide code, which the core developers will try to integrate.

PS: It could be anyone writing this code, it seems no-one has invested their (spare) time yet.

It looks like it might be "Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS); Vehicular Communications" (packet-geonw.c)

You coud raise a bug report attaching a trace and reference the apropriate standards so someone can take a look.
