I am having a hard time finding a way to Display filter packets with SYN+FIN combo, regardless if other flags are set. Would this be the correct syntax? tcp.flags.syn==1 && tcp.flags.fin==1 When i do this but use other flags that one would expect together, the results only give me packets with either one or the other flag set. I need packets with BOTH set. someone please help?

tcp.flags.syn==1 && tcp.flags.fin==1 is the correct filter to get all packets with SYN and FIN flag set - which should never happen as it's an invalid combination. If you see that kind of flag set it's usually a scan tool doing it.
