Open Shortest Path First (OSPF)
XXX - add a brief OSPF description here
XXX - add a brief description of OSPF history
XXX - Add example traffic here (as plain text or Wireshark screenshot).
The OSPF dissector is (fully functional, partially functional, not existing, ... whatever the current state is). Also add info of additional Wireshark features where appropriate, like special statistics of this protocol.
(XXX add links to preference settings affecting how OSPF 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 Wireshark can open gzipped files automatically.
A complete list of OSPF display filter fields can be found in the display filter reference
Show only the OSPF traffic:
You cannot directly filter OSPF protocols while capturing. However, if you know the IP protocol type used (see above), you can filter on that one.
Capture OSPF traffic:
ip proto ospf
or, if that gets a parse error:
ip proto 0x59
RFC 2328 OSPF Version 2
RFC 2740 OSPF for IPv6 - describes OSPF version 3
- add additional I-Ds and other specs
