When selecting View|"Displayed Columns", source and destination address can be
shown but port number (evidently) cannot.  For some traces (e.g., a localhost
transaction with 127.0.0.1 as both source and destination IP) where port
numbers are not otherwise displayed (e.g. TLS), it becomes confusing as to
which direction any given packet is headed.  This could be improved by allowing
the port number to appear as a column entry.  For packets lacking a port number
maybe "(none)" or "?" would be acceptable.
