A Python script that enables you to view Tektronix .rf5 files in Wireshark. You still need access to the Tektronix hardware, but at least it is better than nothing… The script takes a text file created by Tektronix tool Rec2
(Note that the current version of Wireshark 0.10.12 can now read at least some .rf5 files directly, so you might not need to use this tool to read them. If you have problems reading .rf5 files, report them to [email protected] .)
Get Python from http://www.python.org if it is not included in your distribution.
Input: A text file created by Tektronix tool Rec2
To use this script:
1. Open tektronix2pcap.py in a text editor and set TEXT2PCAP_PATH to point to your text2pcap (usually the Wireshark top directory).
2. Start C:\K1297\bin\Rec2
3. Follow the instructions. Choose Hex view (and none of the other options) when asked about format.
4. Open a command window or terminal and type
tektronix.py <infile> <outfile> where infile is created in step 2 above.
Example: tektronix.py infile.ascii outfile.pcap
:heavy_exclamation_mark: Wireshark now reads most rf5 files by itself. See K12 for an explanation.
