Hi, 

This message is over a year late :(

I see that in Aug, 2006, there was talk of a CA protocol dissector for 
ethereal (now wireshark)
But, no announcement of availability to the community since -- (did I miss it? 
:(

I believe a protocol dissector should be a requirement for using any control 
system/control system protocol. (just to let people know where I'm coming 
from.)

I, not been a heavy EPICS advocate (and ignorant about tech-talk also at the 
time), did start a dissector in Fe/Mar of 2006. I think I actually got pretty 
far. See:
http://fnapcf.fnal.gov/~ron/p/ethereal/ethereal-0.10.14.sf6/plugins/ca/

My question is:
 Does anyone have a complete solution?
and if so, where is it?
and also, shouldn't it be made easy to find (advertised) from the main EPICS 
page?

Thanks,
Ron
