Protocols/CEA 852

Component Network over IP (CN/IP)

CN/IP is defined in standard EIA/CEA-852. It is used to transport component network frames such as LON over UDP or TCP.

A word of warning: The CN/IP dissector was implemented in order to dissect LON traffic. The dissector was not tested with real CN/IP traffic, but with packets I generated myself.

The CN/IP dissector currently only supports dissection of data frames.

Capture Filter

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

Capture only the CN/IP traffic over the default port (1628):

 udp port 1628
