Syncro is a Wireshark plugin that allows a program to remotely command Wireshark. Syncro supports two commands
GoToFrame - an instruction that causes Wireshark to jump to a new packet and display it's details
ApplyFilter - instructs Wireshark to apply a display filter
Syncro also asynchronously sends Event messages to the client when the user manually moves to a new packet by clicking on a packet, moving up and down within the packet list or moving using the user interface Go To Frame.
Syncro is a Custom plugin written in C++ and using the Qt libraries. For this reason, Syncro will only work with Qt versions of Wireshark and there is no plan to back-port it to GTK.
In this section we provide the source code for the plugin, a compiled DLL for Windows, a sample Qt client program and a user guide, as well as other useful resources.
SyncBox is a small Qt Console Application that can be used to link two Wireshark instances so that movements in one are tracked by the other. This is a zip file containing SyncBox.exe (Windows 64-bit) with two supporting DLLs.
