Hi, I am a new wireshark user and I made a request to .I was able to capture some packets. There are some TCP SYN and TCP SYN/ACK packets How can I substract the SYN/ACK times in order to get the exact http response time?

ALSO is the http transaction time both the actual response time and the syn/ack times?

To get some further HTTP statistics use the Statistics -> HTTP menu.
