Tracing and Viewing REST Exchanges with Wireshark: A Journey to Media Server Enlightenment

Today we will walking though how to capture and view REST messages via a network trace. We will start by using TCPDump to collect the network traffic on the XMS server. We will then use the sample REST demo we have been working on to generate some REST traffic. Finally, we will use Wireshark to view the REST exchanges as well as Long-Poll events. I will share some tricks that can be used in Wireshark to properly extract and view the messages. These techniques should be useful for REST developers. It will allow you to view messaging from sample demos or in debugging your own implementations. Also, this is the process used by support engineers when troubleshooting REST related cases.

What Can We Expect From Cloud Computing and the Internet of Things?

Do you ever wonder how the Internet will shape our future? It’s a pretty interesting question, especially considering how much the Internet has grown within the last 10 years. With our world so consumed by the Web – from WebRTC to Web-based contact centers and more – it’s no wonder everything is becoming completely technology-centric (unless you live under a...
