ARCshark captures all ARCNET data and saves them in a file format compatible with Wireshark. This allows Wireshark the ability to decode the BACnet ARCNET messages.
Note that ARCshark captures only data packets. ARCshark cannot capture non-data frames such as Tokens, Free Buffer Inquiries, Acks, Naks and Recons.
Because ARCshark uses Contemporary Control's ArcX.dll to communicate with the company's ARCNET cards, ARCshark can work with most Contemporary Controls ARCNET products, such as the PCI20U line of PCI Bus ARCNET adapters, the USB22 line of USB ARCNET adapters and the AI-SRVR line of ARCNET to Ethernet servers.
