Wireshark 2 0 Find Feature (by Tony Fortunato)

Wireshark2

As you start using Wireshark 2.0 there will be an adjustment period or learning curve.  This is that point in time when you casually use a routine feature or function and see something different.

I’ve read many studies that illustrate how people are resist change and your immediate reaction may be a bit of confusion. Before you get all worked up lets take a step back and figure out what changed. In this case, its not that drastic and we can work through it fairly easily.

I would encourage you to remember this with all your network troubleshooting applications. Whenever there is a major software upgrade, make some time to go through the most common tasks. You would be surprised how many features get changed, removed and added. I know this may seem trivial, but when you reach for your favorite tool and things aren't where they used to be, you'll remember my advice. I also take it a step further and email the release notes to myself and read it when I get a chance.

The Find feature is one of those things that I used all the time, so when I went to Wireshark 2.0, I immediately noticed it changed a bit. To be honest, I didn't think Ctrl+F initially worked since I didn't see the Find dialogue box. Like all IT people, I resorted to tapping the same key combination in the hopes it would magically work.  After a few tries, I noticed the a new tool bar appeared and contained all the same options and had a good chuckle.

In this video a take a few minutes to show you the new find feature bar layout and a few tips when using it.

Enjoy
