my problem is not filtering but my problem is obtain accurate size of
transfer byte
i have checked these policies and apply very much and understand them
but apply conn policy on 2 tcpdump file(that one include all of packet
headers and other include only SYN,SYN_ACK,FIN packet headers) have
different results
