Andreas Schuler <krater (A) badterrorist.com>
Matthias Wenzel <dect (A) mazzoo.de> Beginnings of a DECT dissector. This is a copy of the svn repository at dedected.org with the following modifications: - Change from plugin to normal dissector - Change comments from // to /* */ - Change German comments to English - #if-0-out unused variables - Reorder functions to avoid forward declarations and use the normal Wireshark conventions - Fix the scrt table (as by email from Andreas) - Fix Mask for hf_dect_A_Tail_Qt_0_Cn from 0x2F -> 0x3F (as by email from Matthias) - Initialize some variables because GCC isn't aware of the reduced value space in a switch statement that switches on (var & 7). - Declare some function parameters as _U_ - Add GPLv2 and later header (as by emails from Andreas and Matthias). TODO (roughly in that order) - Don't use structs to access the elements in the datastream. - Use tvb_..._item wherever possible - Add references to documentation (ETSI EN 300 175 parts 1-8) including the section. - Make things stateful - Once the capture format has stabilized, get rid of the Ethernet hack and use a proper capture type. svn path=/trunk/; revision=27362

+DECT pcap files can be obtained by using tools coming with the linux
+kernel driver for the Dosch-and-Amand COM-ON-AIR cards. The driver is
+called com-on-air_cs.
+Wireshark itself cannot directy record from the DECT HW, as the driver
+currently lacks a virtual network interface.
+There is ongoing work to change this (see this work by Patrick McHardy):
+git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/kaber/dect-2.6.git
+git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/kaber/libnl-dect.git
+git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/libs/netlink/libnl.git
+Also needed are a proper linktype value assigned by the libpcap team and
+the proper patches for libpcap to support this (the value used in the
+patch below is not officially assigned!):
+To nicely view DECT pcap files in wireshark, set up a custom layout:
+ User Interface
+ Colums
+ No. | Number
+ Time | Time (format as specified)
+ Protocol | Protocol
+ TA | HP-UX Subsystem
+ A-Field | Network src addr
+ B-Field | Network dest addr
