[Wireshark-users] Need help in understanding the "Signature Generation" for SMB packets

     I have a pcap file with smb traffic and I am trying to understand how
the signature is generated.
     Using wireshark GUI, I have opened the pcap file and have put a filter,
so that I can see the relevant tcp stream only.
     In this stream, the initial authentication is done using NTLMSSP.
     But, after nearly 100 smb packets, suddenly I see a SetupAndX
Request/Response, with krb5 AP_REQ and AP_REP.
     I have used the keytab file to decrypt the AP_REP and get the session
     Now, the sequence number starts with 0 and I have used that counter to
calculate the signature.
     But, the signature that I am getting doesn't match with the original
     I also, tried to count the sequence number starting from the NTLM
Request/Response and with that also, the signature doesn't match.

     So, can somebody tell me, if this kind of mixup of NTLM and kerberos
packets in a single tcp stream is common?
     And how to get the right signature in this case?

Warm Regards,
