Media Gateway Control Protocol (MEGACO/H.248.1)
MEGACO is used to control a Media GAteway in a VoIP system, MEGACO can be Text or Binary encoded.
- ["M3UA"]: MEGACO can use ["M3UA"] as its transport protocol, if M3UA is used there is an indication in the M3UA part that this is
- ["SCTP"]: Typically(?) MEGACO uses ["SCTP"] as its transport protocol, MEGACO is indicated in SCTP.
- ["TCP"]: MEGACO can use ["TCP"] as its transport protocol. The well known TCP port for MEGACO traffic is xx, if TCP is used
a TPKT header must be included.
- ["UDP"]: MEGACO can use ["UDP"] as its transport protocol. The well known UDP port for MEGACO traffic is xx
- ["SCTP"]: Typically(?) MEGACO uses ["UDP"] as its transport protocol.
XXX - Add example traffic here (as plain text or Ethereal screenshot).
The MEGACO dissector works for TEXT encoding of the protocoll if EOL is used as SEParator. Also add info of additional Ethereal features where appropriate, like special statistics of this protocol.
(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. Keep it short, it's also a good idea to gzip it to make it even smaller, as Ethereal can open gzipped files automatically.
A complete list of PROTO display filter fields can be found in the [http://www.ethereal.com/docs/dfref/PROTO/PROTO.html display filter reference]
Show only the PROTO based traffic:
You cannot directly filter PROTO protocols while capturing. However, if you know the ["TCP"] port used (see above), you can filter on that one.
- add link to PROTO specification and where to find additional info on the web about PROTO
