Hi there all,

I'm trying to decode a stream of ansi 801-1 messages, to get LBS running
on my cell phone. In order to debug a problem which seems to be
happening on the network, I have the phone contact my machines, on which
I have a simple proxy server running which will forward messages back
and forth to a PDE. I am running Ethereal on the machine and trying to
examine the 801-1 packets, but ethereal decodes them as Apache j-server
packets. I can not find 801-1 in the "decode as" dialog. I am using
the port 8009, which is non-standard if I recall correctly, so this
could be part of the problem, but my understanding is that I should be
able to decode any of the protocols by selecting them in the decode as
dialog.

Also, is there any freely available reference from IS-801-1? What
reference was used to build the decoder? The only one I can find costs
$280.

You should be able to decode any protocol *for which Wireshark (see
above) has a dissector that's configured to run atop TCP or UDP* by
selecting them in the "decode as" dialog.

Unfortunately, the ANSI IS-801 dissector isn't one of them. It's
configured to run atop the ANSI MAP and ANSI A Interface dissectors.

On top of what protocol is your stream of ANSI 801 messages being
transported? ("On top of" meaning "*Directly* on top of", not
"somewhere on top of", i.e. what's the protocol *immediately* below
it; if some protocol's being transported atop TCP or UDP, and ANSI 801
is being transported atop that protocol, ANSI 801 isn't being
transported "on top of TCP" or "on top of UDP" for the purposes of
this question.)
