Border Gateway Protocol (BGP)

XXX - add a brief BGP description here


XXX - add a brief description of BGP history

Protocol dependencies

Example traffic

XXX - Add example traffic here (as plain text or Wireshark screenshot).


The BGP dissector is (fully functional, partially functional, not existing, ... whatever the current state is). Also add info of additional Wireshark features where appropriate, like special statistics of this protocol.

Using Wireshark to decode BGP

Preference Settings

(XXX add links to preference settings affecting how BGP is dissected).

Example capture file

XXX - Add a simple example capture file to the SampleCaptures page and link from here. Keep it short, it's also a good idea to gzip it to make it even smaller, as Wireshark can open gzipped files automatically.

Display Filter

A complete list of BGP display filter fields can be found in the display filter reference

Capture Filter

You cannot directly filter BGP protocols while capturing. However, if you know the TCP port used (see above), you can filter on that one.
