File Transfer Access and Management protocol (FTAM)

The File Transfer Access and Management protocol (FTAM), an ISO application protocol, offers file transfer services between client (initiator) and server (responder) systems in an open environment. FTAM also provides access to files and management of files on diverse systems. Similar to FTP (File Transfer Protocol) and NFS (Network File System) in the TCP/IP environment, FTAM is designed to help users access files on diverse systems that use compatible FTAM implementations.


XXX - add a brief description of PROTO history

Protocol dependencies

Example traffic

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


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

Preference Settings

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

Example capture file

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

Display Filter

A complete list of PROTO display filter fields can be found in the [ display filter reference]

Capture Filter

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