I am new to PPP. I request your help in answeing the following
I had a request from one of my colleagues who is using
Wireshark 1.4.0 on Windows to decode PPP packets.
Its regarding the Peer Id and password fields in PPP PAP messages.
Why are they limited to showing only the length and not the whole
For eg: the dissecting of the PAP message goes on something like this:
- PPP Password Authentication Protocol
Code: Authenticate-Request (0x01)
- Data (18 bytes)
- Peer Id length: 8 bytes
Peer-Id (8 bytes)
- Password length: 8 bytes
Password (8 bytes)
Why is the Peer Id and the password contents not shown?
