Troubleshooting with Wireshark - Remove Unrelated Protocols (by Chris Greer)

Sometimes packet digging can get tedious. We've all been there. 

It can be hard to set the right filter that lets us hone in on the root cause. In many cases, it is just as helpful to remove protocols from view that are not probably not related to the problem. At least that will give us less to dig through. I call that removing "packet static". 

In this video, we will look at how to create a button in Wireshark that will remove common protocols or conversations that will simplify the trace. 

 

Hope this helps when packet digging!
