[RESOLVED] Packet capture download file issue
built on Mon Jan 10 03:33:55 EST 2011
Was doing some packet captures today trying to track down the problem w/ having an FTP server behind NAT. In the process, I discovered that when I download the captured packets, the HTML of the capture page is appended to the end of the file.
It looks like the data stream isn't being explicitly closed after the capture is sent - just a guess. Wireshark complains about an overly large packet when you try to open the saved file.
Try one from the last day or so. We were doing some work with enabling zlib compression in the GUI but I think it was backed out last night because it was causing problems like that.
Just tested packet capture with the snapshot from today, and it works fine, can download and open the captured data with wireshark. ( if it helps )
The brokenness varied by browser. IE seemed to suffer the worst.
The problem does appear to be resolved now.
I was using FireFox 3.6.13 under ubuntu and Firefox 4b8 under windows 7.
