Wireshark-users: [Wireshark-users] RSL over LAPD over UDP not parsed

Dear all,


I have some tcpdump traces where I am very sure that the protocol stack used is RSL over LAPD over UDP. However, the RSL over LAPD part is not parsed by Wireshark, but only displayed as hex data. I have tried to find some configuration possibility to manually assign LAPD to the non standard UDP port number which is used in this case, but I failed.


Therefore my question, can I somehow configure Wireshark to parse LAPD and RSL inside the UDP packets? If this is not possible configuration-wise, could someone point me to the places in the source code where I would have to make changes to “hard code” this protocol stack into a special Wireshark version which I could use specifically for these traces only?


Thanks a lot in advance for your help!
