If there's an easy way to decompress it, I certainly don't know it. Wireshark just gives me a pile of packets- I don't know what algorithm was used to compress the data, or even where the compressed data starts and ends.
Is there any documentation anywhere as to which SASL modules encrypt the data, vs. which don't?
