Decode Protocol As

The Decode Protocol As analysis tool allows you to define custom rules for decoding protocols running on non-default ports. Up to five unique and persistent custom protocol decode rules can be defined for each capture.

Each rule is characterized by three elements:

  • The layer, ie tcp.port or udp.port
  • The port number, ie any valid integer between 0 and 65535
  • The protocol, ie http or rtsp

For example, if a capture file contains HTTP traffic on the non-standard TCP port of 789, a custom rule could be added to automatically decode this traffic as shown in the following screenshot.
