I have a very big TCP dump between two servers. There are only two IP addresses so each conversation is defined by the TCP ports used. My question is how do I group the the data by conversations such that all the output is still there just grouped by unique conversation

There is no such grouping feature in Wireshark, at least not in the 'main' GUI.

What you can do:

  • View Conversations: Statistics -> Conversations -> TCP (tab). Then select one conversation and click on 'Follow Stream'. That will create a display filter to show only that single conversation
  • Set a display filter manually: eq 0 or eq 1 etc.

try using Splitcap tool, its excellent, works very fast and has various options to manipulate the capture file
