I have several questions about wireshark packet.

  1. why when I request a website, there will get two TCP connection? you see the first two packets60907 -> 80 and 60908->80

2.what's the tcp.analysis ? and tcp.analysis.flags? it possible to sort the TCP connection packets by each connect? I mean, if there have two TCP connections, you see the 1-6 packet. is it possible to list like: 1 3 5 2 4 6

  1. The web client tries to optimise the user experience by trying to get all information as fast as possible. It then helps to open multiple TCP connections to get at the various resources that make up a web page, e.g., the text content and graphics.
  2. tcp.analysis is the Wireshark analysis of the TCP sequence numbers and acknowledgements so far. It includes metrics like RTT, bytes in flight, bytes since last PSH. The flags are noticeable aspects of the current packet.
  3. Yes, add a column (type custom) with field as field, and use that to sort.
