LINX is an inter process communication protocol developed by Enea used for local and remote communications in distributed systems.
LINX is based on the IPC method - called LINK - used in Enea's OSE operating system. A Linux kernel module implementing the protocol is released as open source.
The LINX dissector is fully functional but could be improved for sure:
- Reassembling of fragmented packages
- Improve RLNH handling
- Improve info column
