Trying to filter packets with Wireshark. Why it finds nothing when placing filter tcp contains M-SEARCH. I have such value on the third line.

SSDP uses UDP as the underlying transport protocol. You are filtering on TCP.


Try matching UDP text instead.

  • I tried UDP contains M-SEARCH, but got the same result - No packet contained that string in its Info column – vico Jul 31 '17 at 11:24
  • Might be the case that the text you see in the Info column, is not actually a field, so you can't filter on it. It's a summary of the the data form the other fields. If you view the details of the packet, you will see in which field M-SEARCH really is shown. – JayMcTee Jul 31 '17 at 11:29
