I'm trying to find out what the data of a packet means. I'm a newbie to networking, and I try to find what's sent in this packet: https://pastebin.com/hZEqjmBx How can I do that? What does that data mean? How do you decode it, or is it crypted or something? I pasted the whole HEX + ASCII dump of the packet.

  • $\begingroup$ But how did he decode the payload? He just says "it decodes to", how? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ The payload is encoded in ASCII, just convert each byte (two exadecimal digit) to the corresponding character using any ASCII table. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ It's nonsesne, it's like a Z, then nothing, nothing, N, then nothing, then 0, then nothing that's on the ASCII TABLE. $\endgroup$
