Quote of the day (qod)

The qod protocol allows a client to get a random quote from a server.

History

The protocol is as old as TCP and is part of the basic protocols.

Protocol dependencies

  • TCP: Qod uses TCP as its transport protocol. The TCP port for qod traffic is 17.

Example traffic

Do'h - Homer Simpson

Wireshark

No qod dissector exists; the protocol is raw text without any formatting or commands.

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 qod display filter fields can be found in the display filter reference

  • Show only the qod based traffic:

     qod 

Capture Filter

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

  • Capture only the qod traffic over the default port (17):

     tcp port 17 

  • RFC 865 Quote of the Day Protocol - description of the qod protocol.
