Try disabling the TCP reassembly option.

There's also the "Do not call subdissectors for error packets" tcp preference.

Allow subdissector to reassemble TCP stream

works fine

Do not call subdissectors for error packets

makes no change. Thanks for your help.

In fact when I disable : Allow subdissector to reassemble TCP stream, the dissector shows correct data information when the packets contain an entire structure, but if there is only the beginning of a new structure it does not work, as it could not reassemble with the next packet.

Is there a way to have both :

  • reassembly of packet from dissector
  • correct display for "(suspected) retransmission" ?
