Description Neal Groothuis 2005-04-25 19:29:16 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0

Description of problem:
The SMB dissector incorrectly considers the Data Length High field in a Write AndX request to be 4 bytes instead of 2.  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Capture SMB traffic that includes an SMB Write AndX Request (e.g., a logon.)
2. Attempt to dissect the packet.

Actual Results:  All data following the data length high field are reported incorrectly.

Expected Results:  The fields should be read from their correct offsets within the packet, leading to non-garbage data.

Additional info:

This bug is caused by ethereal-0.10.6-old.patch in the SRPM.  The distribution code is correct and should not be patched.

Thanks for pointing me to this, the patch will get romved. Should I have also a
sample capture file so I can see these packets (I don't have SMB filesystem here)
