getting started with VisualEther
generate a sequence diagram from Wireshark
Select a Wireshark PCAP file and create a new Field Extraction Template (FXT) file by selecting the message titles. In this video we define filter templates for SIP messages carried over TCP-IPv6, UDP-IPv6 and UDP-IPv4 messages from a VoLTE originated call from an iPhone. The FXT file is then used to generate a SIP call flow generated in PDF. The example also shows how you can click on message names to see full message structure with full field level detail.
add style and color
Add a dash of color to the selected messages with the built in styles.
customize message titles with regular expressions
Don't like the default text for the message name; replace the text using full regular expression support. Use regular expressions to identify message title fragments that you wish to extract. Specify the replacement text that uses the extracted message fragments.
select and add parameters to display below the messages
Identify important message parameters that you wish to include below the message arrow. You can access the remaining parameters by clicking on the message title.
automate Wireshark protocol diagnostics
Use regular expressions to quickly identify messages signaling error conditions. The messages are assigned an "error" style that makes the messages standout in red. Also bookmark these messages in the PDF file for quick access.
VisualEther includes over 45 samples for different protocol. This video walks you through some of the examples. SIP, RTP, RANAP, BGP, WiFi and Bluetooth examples are included in the walkthrough.
