This program enables wireshark to display the network traffic of Amiga
netfs filesystem in human readable form.
Wireshark is availabe for most platforms and is the network traffic analyzing
tool of choice. See https://www.wireshark.org 
Netfs is a great Amiga network filesystem originally written by Timo Rossi.
The protocol dissector has been writen and tested with NetFS-revised.lha 1.2
by Philippe Rimauro in mind.
The idea and first implementation attempts of this wireshark dissector occured 
on a hackathon on June 28th, 2018 in the Adtran company.

usage:
Simply copy the file netfs.lua to the wireshark plugin directory.

On Windows:
•       The personal plugin folder is %APPDATA%\Wireshark\plugins.
•       The global plugin folder is WIRESHARK\plugins.

On Unix-like systems:
•       The personal plugin folder is ~/.local/lib/wireshark/plugins.

In my case on Windows that is
C:\Program Files\Wireshark\plugins\1.12.2\


Then capture the traffic on your network or load a prevously captured
pcap-file. The netfs-traffic will automatically be decoded.

Due to the way netfs is designed especially the netfs responses are not
unambiguous for wireshark, i.e. there are often multiple possibilities 
for decoding. In these cases wireshark offers all possible decodings 
and the user can choose the correct one.

An example decding can be seen in the provided screenshot.
