I love Wireshark but sometimes it does not decode all needed parameters. Among others – I have problems with Q.850 cause codes provided in INAP/CAMEL Release Call or Call Information Report messages. If you feel that it could be useful for you
PHP Warning: PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library '/usr/lib/php5/20100525/snmp.so' - /usr/lib/php5/20100525/snmp.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory in Unknown on line 0
You can fix it by installing a another, missing php5 package:
Fresh installation of Solaris 10 and wireshark (from sunfreeware.com) just cannot start:
root@am1slc01# wireshark No fonts found; this probably means that the fontconfig library is not correctly configured. You may need to edit the fonts.conf configuration file. More information about fontconfig can be found in the fontconfig(3) manual page and on http://fontconfig.org
The application context (AC) is the mechanism for identifying the protocol and the protocol version of an application part (AP). The object identifier is used to assign a globally unique identifier to a protocol object, such as an AC for CAP. When the gsmSSF starts the CAMEL service, by sending the initial DP operation to the SCP, it includes the AC in the service invocation request.R.Noldus, CAMEL: Intelligent Networks for the GSM, GPRS and UMTS Network
This small piece of software allows you to convert various formats of SS7 addresses .
Many times in my work I have oportunity to convert addreses in SS7 network. This operation is not extremly complicated but can take some time. That is main reason why this small piece of software was created.
Address within SS7 network can be writen in may different formats. Most populars are: decimal and with grouping (e.g. 7-7).
What does it means? Take a look below:
If 14-bits address (in my example it’s 8010 – dec format) will be shown in binary format and divided into two 7-bits groups we will get two numbers: 62 and 74. A a result we will get address 62-74.
Format 7-7 is one of many formats. Let’s imagine 8-6 or even 8-4-2! The only requirement is that sum of numbers from format description must be equal 17 (e.g.: 7+7 = 14, 8+4+2 = 14 or 8+6 = 14).
New: During my last project I discovered that SS7 addressing is not pice of cake I though before… It appeared that in China lenght of addresses is not equal to 14, but 24 bits (with SCCPType == 4). In this case address is represented with grouping 8-8-8.
Application allows to convert SS7 adresses between various, widely configured formats. Now it supports only 14-bits addressing.
Predefined formats: Dec, 7-7, 6-8, 5-9, 8-6 and 9-5. If you need any other format you can edit file formaty.txt
