Microsoft Media Server (MSMMS)

Normally known just as MMS, the name MSMMS was chosen to avoid clashing with the abbreviation used for the Multimedia Messaging Service.

It is a transport used by Microsoft Media Player (other transports carried over HTTP and RTSP are also in use) and compatible media players.

Protocol dependencies


The MSMMS dissector shows most of the known command parameters, and the pre-header for data frames.

Preference Settings

There are currently no preference settings for this protocol.

However, in order to see re-assembled frames, it is recommended that you enable 'Reassemble fragmented IP datagrams' for IP and 'Allow subdissector to reassemble TCP streams' for TCP.
