Attero: Why newer versions of Wireshark not supported?

  • Calnex Attero
  • Wireshark 1.6.9
  • Wireshark 1.10.3
  • The version of Wireshark loaded is the latest one “supported” by Spirent. It includes a decode of the Spirent Test Signature that is encoded within packets sent from Spirent TestCenter. It is possible for the user to use a newer Wireshark version. The Attero application will display an alert (see below) that the Wireshark version installed is not supported, but it will not prevent its use.
  • The wireshark location is fixed to first look at "C:\Program Files\Wireshark" then if it doesn't find it, it will look in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Wireshark".
    • There is no setting in the Attero application to change the wireshark location.
