Media Gateway Control Protocol (MGCP)

Media Gateway Control Protocol (MGCP) is a protocol used within a distributed Voice over IP system. Details on wikipedia


XXX - add a brief description of MGCP history

Protocol dependencies

Example traffic

XXX - Add example decoded traffic for this protocol here (as plain text or Wireshark screenshot).


The MGCP dissector is fully functional.

Preference Settings

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 Wireshark can open gzipped files automatically.

Display Filter

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

Capture Filter

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