Packet Dump Decode

Packet Dump Decode (pdd) is a simple convenient GUI wrapper around the Wireshark/Ethereal tools to convert packet hexdumps into well formatted xml containing the decoded protocols and protocol contents

Using pdd, you just need to copy-paste the hexdump into pdd and hit the "Decode" button.

Convert hexdumps to -

  • Tree-View (within application)
  • Pcap file and open with Wireshark/Ethereal
  • Text description of packet contents
  • XML description of packet contents

NOTE: pdd is only a wrapper around the Wireshark/Ethereal tools and hence needs either (but at least one) to be already installed.
