Follow TCP Stream changes View Filter


Hi All,

Is there any way to make the "Follow TCP Stream" command not change my view filter in WireShark? When I use this, I am generally looking for a specific stream and it makes it annoying when I have to go and reset my filter after looking at each stream.

This is not possible. Wireshark needs to select the packets that belong to the stream before recreating the payload.
