Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM)

XXX - add a brief PIM description here


XXX - add a brief description of PIM history

Protocol dependencies

Example traffic

XXX - Add example traffic here (as plain text or Wireshark screenshot).


The PIM 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.

Preference Settings

There are no PIM specific preference settings.

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.

Display Filter

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

Capture Filter

You cannot directly filter PIM protocols while capturing.
