BACnet networks can be brought down by excessive traffic, devices sending errors, and hundreds of other variables. Luckily, Wireshark can help identify the troublemaker devices and root causes of network problems.
We had a great time chatting with Greg Holloway, Tech Support and Wireshark Guru at Delta Controls, about the bits and bytes of Wireshark. Greg had some fantastic tips for navigating the tool.
The webinar started off with a review of Wireshark functions and tricks for filtering through packets (catch that at around 7 minutes in). From there, we talked about different problems that you can resolve with Wireshark, including circular networks, duplicate BBMDs, and MS/TP token disruptions (skip ahead to Greg’s troubleshooting advice at around 19 minutes in). We dove into questions and some final tips and tricks to finish off the webinar (at around 50 minutes in).
