  • As mentioned here by @Kiran, Wireshark populate it’s Protocol column by inferring from the port number
  • Now, if want Wireshark to show FTP corresponding to our FTP packets, we need to tell it manually which all ports we are using for FTP manually.

  • How to do it?

    1. For each of the port number we want to assign as FTP, Right-Click and click on Decode As
    2. Click on + icon to add a new entry. Double-click on (none) to open the drop-down and select the required protocol from it.
    3. Click Ok
  • You’ll see the text we usually see logged into vsftpd.conf in the Info column for packets having data

Hope it helped :slight_smile:
