[SOLVED] Wireshark : Packet size limited during capture


Wireshark and tcpdump are the two of the most useful tools in debugging a certain issue. Every now and then I use tcpdump to capture network packets in linux or unix platform and use wireshark to analyze the captured packets. I can’t imagine myself debugging network related issues without those two tools, it will be crawling in the dark =)

Recently we have an issue pertaining to HTTP transactions and I have to use tcpdump to capture the packets to see the exact data send out to our server. I got the  tcpdump with the http transaction however in wireshark I got a message with “Packet size limited during the capture“, you can see below screenshot.

Eclipse plugin remote file system

Posted in PROGRAMMING, SERVERS, WEBBLOG by edeguzman on March 15, 2012

Have you ever experience working on a C++ project with GNU compiler where the build was on remote server. It’s really a pain where every now and then you have to upload your changes to the build server just for you to build.

I got a situation where I’m using windows workstation and I got a very old but big project which is multi-platform supporting windows, linux and solaris. Each of the three supported platforms has its own build server. I’m using Eclipse as my IDE for this C++ project  and good thing we have this NFS server that is mounted to all three platforms, having all my modified changes reflected to all build servers. Refer to below figure 1 diagram for the environment setup.

Replacing Easysoft Oracle driver with Oracle instant client

Posted in C/C++ LANGUAGE, PROGRAMMING, WEBBLOG by edeguzman on March 13, 2012

  I’ve decided to create an article on the several things that I’ve done to replace the Easysoft Oracle driver with the Oracle instant client because I did not found any article related to this topic (I might save someone’s time). For a minute I thought that this activity we’ll involved several man-dates to accomplish this activity, however it turn out to be just several man-hours but of course not involving build environment for our application.

The Easysoft  Oracle driver is really a good ODBC driver but the problem you have to pay for the license.  This is the reason we have to find an alternative that can also work harmoniously with unixODBC for the reason we want to cut cost. Good thing that Oracle finally provide there own ODBC driver that can work with unixODBC and it’s FREE!

IBM T42 fan patch fixed

Posted in WEBBLOG by edeguzman on May 15, 2009

I just finally fixed my fan error problem of my IBM T42 thinkpad.  I’ve been having a hard time finding for the fan.  I just got lucky that I found one but its a second hand and from an IBM T40 thinkpad.  Although it was a little different from the fan of T42 Thinkpad, I just did a little improvise so that I can use the T40 fan on my T42.

The fan of T40 Thinkpad is short while the fan of T42 Thinkpad is long.  Though you can replace the T40 fan into a T42 unit without doing any changes but that’s quite risky. Because the long fan provides heatsink for the video card while the short fan don’t.
