I try to find if there are any ldap auth request from a client. The problem is that my capture is full of bindRequest(1) "ROOT" simple messages. The display filter that I use is: ldap.messageID == 1 && ldap.bindRequest_element. Nevertheless this filter does not filter out the message above - because it is with "messageID: 1" I look for anything that is not <root> i.e.: bindRequest(1) "cn=myuser,ou=users,dc=example,dc=com" simple

Try posting a capture file online somewhere and identifying packets that you don't want your filter to match vs. packets that you do want your filter to match.

Hi, that simple Bind request with ROOT are connection request by Ldap heart beat mechanism, can you just aks LDAP client to stop heartbeat and then see if there is any actual traffic request
