What session id? What user id? What protocol are you talking about? Sounds like HTTP to me...

Anyway, please be more specific or we can't help you.

Your question is not a Wireshark 'problem', but a problem of protocol knowledge (lack of), in this case (probably) HTTP and the session concept in web programming.

Please read the following articles to get a rough idea.

These are just the first ones I found on google.
