That's what, why I asked a pcap file.
It would required smaller attached file, and would gave us more info.
I found a new theory, based on: 1 pic ~= 1 Mword
1 pcap ~= 1000 pic!

That's another thing, I asked a pcap file. I gave up.
Maybe there is a chance to do that with some patterndb magic, where we can
"process" and "correlate", etc.

Kind regards,
