Wireshark (previously known as Ethereal) is invaluable for understanding what's happening on the wire between a client and server. Some todo's:

  • General maintenance, bug-fixing: e.g. last I checked it was mis-parsing NFSv4 setattr ops.
  • At least if it sees the setclientid call (which includes the address, port, and protocol to use for callbacks), wireshark should be able to properly display operations on the callback channel. Currently it doesn't.
  • (probably hard) Given knowledge of the appropriate keys, decrypt and dissect privacy-encoded calls and replies.
