I am working on an assignment while also getting a self-taught crash-course on wireshark filters. One of the things I want/need to do is find data captured via telnet while displaying the minimal amount of traffic required to capture it. What I have done is watched all network packets, found their similarities, and made that my (very detailed) filter.

My question is this - is there a way to display only the data portion of a packet in wireshark? I know how to follow a TCP stream but that gives a lot of information that is unnecessary, and isn't the goal of the assignment. It seems like there would be a simple way to display only the data, but I have not found it yet.

Thanks for you time
