New protocol: FTP

(Aymeric Caroff) #1

Hi, is there any plan to support FTP protocol in a not too distant future?
Best regards

Hi, we don't have plans for FTP for now. I opened an issue here to track it, but don't expect it too soon. But we can help you to do add support if you are interested.

I would love to implement it but I have a very very limited knowledge of the Go language which makes it slightly difficult. But if there is an in-depth tutorial on how to create a beat for a new protocol, I'm up for the challenge. Can you point out some tutorials/webpages to get me started?

Best regards

We're just working on an easy to follow guide. Should have it in 2-3 weeks.

Looking forward to it :slight_smile: Thanks for the info.

Starting with beta3 release, we have a developer guide about how to add a new protocol in Packetbeat:

It would be great if you could add support for FTP. Let us know if you need any help!
