Hi List,

In version 0.99.6 we have, by example :
Source   Destination   Protocol Info TCP      3946 > http [ACK] ...

In version 0.99.7-SVN-22549 we have :
Source   Destination   Protocol Info TCP      backupedge > http
[ACK] ...

The resolution from the new services file from IANA is
not relevant in such cases with random source port.
Perhaps this new resolution scheme should be optional.
Perhaps it should just be more intelligent, and if one port is < 1024 and 
the other isn't, just resolve the one less than 1024?
On the other hand that doesn't solve the problem in the general case. I 
guess it would be nice to make a decision based on where the SYN comes
