Including or Excluding Connections
Choosing the Protocols to Include in a Script

Including or Excluding Connections
In the Manual Filtering dialog box tree, each top-level item expands to display the
components of one or more connections. Connection components can appear in the
tree in any hierarchical order, depending on the Sort Order setting.
If a top-level item is marked for inclusion in the script that is being generated, all
requests associated with that item (such as all HTTP connections) are included in
the script. However, you can then selectively exclude one or more of the individual
connections.
By selecting items to include and exclude, you can:
Include or exclude all requests associated with a protocol, or just some of those
requests (by including or excluding client or server items below it).
Include or exclude all requests to a particular server, or just some of those
requests (by including or excluding protocol or client items below it).
Include or exclude all requests from a particular client, or just some of those
requests (by including or excluding protocol or server items below it).
To include or exclude the requests associated with an item in the tree:
1. Click an item to include or exclude. Any items hierarchically below it are also
selected.
2. Click Include or Exclude.
3. Repeat the above steps until all items to include in the script are shaded in red,
and all items to exclude are clear (white).
4. Click OK.
Converting from One Protocol Type to Another
You can also use the Manual Filtering dialog box to convert the requests captured
during a connection from one protocol type to another.
To convert a protocol in the Manual Filtering tree:
1. Click the item of the tree representing the protocol to convert.
2. In the Protocol box, select the new protocol.
3. Click OK.
NOTE: Some requests may be lost in a protocol conversion.
