Wireshark 4.0.5 Released With New Protocol Support

With improved protocol support, various bug fixes, and several enhancements, Wireshark has released version 4.0.5. On March 3, 2023, the most recent version of Wireshark 4.0.4 was made available; this is the second upgrade of this year.

The open-source packet analyzer Wireshark is free to use. It is employed in developing software and communications protocols, network troubleshooting, analysis, and education.

Wireshark is one of the most extensively used tools for analyzing network protocols and serves a variety of tasks.

According to the Wireshark team, official 32-bit Windows packages are unavailable for Wireshark 4.0 and later.

“We do not ship official 32-bit Windows packages for Wireshark 4.0 and later. If you need to use Wireshark on that platform, we recommend using the latest 3.6 release”, Wireshark.

“If you’re running Wireshark on macOS and upgraded to macOS 13 from an earlier version, you will likely have to open and run the “Uninstall ChmodBPF” package, then open and run “Install ChmodBPF” to reset the ChmodBPF Launch Daemon.”

There are different operating systems for which the Wireshark packet analyzer is accessible, including Windows, Linux, macOS, and BSD.

Wireshark 4.0.5 Protocol Support

DHCP, DIS, DNS, ERF, FF, genl, GQUIC, GSM A-bis OML, HL7, IEEE 802.11, ITS, LAPD, netfilter, netlink-route, netlink-sock_diag, nl80211, RLC, RPCoRDMA, RTPS, SCTP, SMB, UDS, VNC, and WCP.
