Microsoft Spool Subsystem (SPOOLSS)

Wireshark dissector for the Microsoft Print System Remote Protocol.


XXX - add a brief description of SPOOLSS history

Protocol dependencies

  • DCE/RPC: Typically, SPOOLSS uses DCE/RPC as its transport protocol.

  • SMB: SPOOLSS can also be transported over SMB.

Example traffic

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


The SPOOLSS dissector is fully functional.

Preference Settings

(XXX add links to preference settings affecting how SPOOLSS 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.
