Quote of the day (qod)

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


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

Protocol dependencies

Example traffic

Do'h - Homer Simpson


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 [http://www.wireshark.org/docs/dfref/q/qod.html display filter reference]

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.
