ICMP not showing up after filtering tcp.port


I was troubleshooting a network issue on a host remotely, I had the following filter set: ip.addr eq my.ip.addr and tcp.port !=#### I set the tcp.port to not equal the one LogMeIn was using so that I can see other traffic coming from me to the remote host that is not the remote desktop session. But it was filtering out my ICMP traffic to the host as well, not sure what I'm doing wrong here.

Thank you

One Answer:


Since you specified a filter part that filters on a TCP port it will filter away ICMP because that is just not TCP (unless you get an ICMP error that quotes a TCP layer). You could change your filter to

ip.addr eq my.ip.addy and icmp or tcp.port !=####
