Downloads - Wireshark plugin
Streaming CAN data via USB
To get started, go through the following steps:
- Download Wireshark 2.4.7 (32 bit/64 bit) and install it
- During installation, enable “Wireshark 1" (you don't need WinPcap/USBPcap)
- Next, power the logger via the CAN bus - and connect it to your PC via USB
- Open CANvas, go to ‘LIVE STREAM DATA’, click Connect and then Start
! CANvas will prompt you to auto-install our Wireshark Plugin.
! In rare cases, you may need to manually install USB drivers.
Manual Wireshark plugin installation
In case you wish to install the plugin manually, simply download it below and extract the *.dll file to your plugins folder (e.g. 'C:\Program Files\Wireshark\plugins\2.4.7\'). You should use the 32 bit or 64 bit version, depending on your OS. Note that the zip file also contains the plugin source code (you do not need to extract this to use the plugin).

# Change Log
All notable changes to CSS Electronics' CANvas-Wireshark plugin.
## [7.1] - 2017-11-14
- Fixed issues when loading the plugin on some PCs
## [7.0] - 2017-07-08
- Support for Wireshark v2.4
- Fixed minor issue where CLX000 log files show up as extended ID despite being standard
- In CAN Live View, the default unique ID length changed from 3 to 0
## [6.1] - 2017-06-07
- Built-in OBD2 dissector with support for converting all Mode 01 parameters (e.g. Vehicle Speed, RPM, ...) and add output to columns, plots etc.
- Support for DBC database importing to allow live conversion of CAN bus messages (incl. multi-frame)
- Support for the DBC J1939 file special case (to match only on PGN rather than full ID), to allow conversion of J1939 data live
- Support for DBC "Message View" vs. "Signal View" (allowing you to switch between showing one row per Message or one row per Signal in a DBC database)
- CAN Live View, allowing a "fixed view" to show all unique IDs and colorize changes to data bytes 0-7 - useful for CAN bus reverse engineering/sniffing
- Support for loading CLX000 log files directly into Wireshark so the above features can be used on them (e.g. DBC conversion, graphical plots, exporting, ...)
