ZMTP Wireshark Dissector
This is a Lua dissector written for the "new" ZMTP protocol, i.e. ZMTP version 3.0 and later.
This dissector requires Lua 5.2 or newer.

As ZeroMQ ports are inherently application-specific, you first need to set up the port range in Preferences → Protocols → ZMTP.
You can use expression
zmtp to filter packets. TCP segments are automatically reassembled.
If you get frame errors, especially when capturing on
lo, the problem is that libpcap cannot capture packets over 64 KiB (relevant bug); do
sudo ip link set lo mtu 65500.
This dissector supports calling subdissectors for an application-level protocol. As ZMTP does not have a generic way of specifying the inner protocol, it is necessary to specify the protocol in the preferences.
A subdissector that wishes to observe ZMTP frames must register itself in the
This dissector is based on a dissector for ZMTP 2, written by Robert G. Jakabosky.
