Thanks for your input - sorry about the Microsoft document - for future reference - what type of document would
suggest using to detail such information?
Plain text for the first page, and GIFs/PNGs for the images on the second and third pages?
Now one vendor appears to be able to come some ways to what we need, the problem is the the vendor can not decode one
of our VoIP signalling protocols because it is proprietary even though Wireshark does a decent job. For the SIP
protocols the vendor solution will work.
Can the vendor write out capture files in a format that Wireshark can currently read? (When you're directly using
dumpcap to capture the packets, you're writing out capture files and reading them later.)
If not, can they write them out in a format for which they have sufficient documentation to allow us to write code for
Wireshark that can read them (and which they're willing to let us read and to write *publicly-available GPL-licensed*
code based on that documentation)?
(I.e., use the vendor's solution as a replacement for dumpcap, but *not* as a replacement for the entire process
including dissection of the captures.)
