I am trying to capture just SOAP interactions through a specific port. There are multiple processes running on the server so I need to be as specific as possible.

I have managed to capture data when a SOAP conversation takes place but there is far too much detail.

Can someone please tell me what Capture Filter to use to limit the data to a specific port and to SOAP.

A capture filter for SOAP is somewhat difficult as it's at a layer above what the capture filters handle well. You can certainly create a capture filter for a specific port, e.g. tcp port 1234. Once you have captured the traffic you can then use a display filter (which can handle filtering for SOAP) to reduce the displayed packets, and then you can export those packets to a new capture file so you can look at just the traffic of interest.
