I am debugging a web application that runs on a non standard http port, and because of this I do not get any HTTP packets in wireshark. Is there some way to have WS decode these packets as HTTP?

Right click on of the packets in the capture, select "Decode As ...", on the transport tab choose the appropriate port that the server is sitting on and then select HTTP in the protocol list, then click OK.
