Analyze capture files and investigate some common protocols in Wireshark
In this chapter download from Practical Packet Analysis: Using Wireshark to Solve Real-World Network Problems, learn how to use Wireshark to analyze capture files and to use those capture files to discover how some common protocols work. First, receive an overview of some of the more common protocols that appear in Wireshark. Then, look at sample trace files containing working samples of several different protocols and explore how each one functions. By the end of the chapter, you will understand each protocol and have a baseline for comparison when analyzing protocols that you suspect aren't working correctly.
