Hi,
In gsm_map
pinfo->p2p_dir = P2P_DIR_RECV; is set of there is an ISDN address string
in there and if
SeriveCentreAddress is present  pinfo->p2p_dir = P2P_DIR_SENT; is set.

The filter is gsm_map

Hi,

Not an expert in this field, but a quick look at the code reveiled this
interesting snippet:

/*
 * this is the GSM 03.40 definition with the bit 2
 * set to 1 for uplink messages
 */
static const value_string msg_type_strings[] = {
    { 0,        "SMS-DELIVER" },
    { 4,        "SMS-DELIVER REPORT" },
......

So it seems that bit 2 is used for direction determination.
This is set in this part of the code:

        /*
         * convert the 2 bit value to one based on direction
         */
        if (pinfo->p2p_dir == P2P_DIR_UNKNOWN)
        {
            /* Return Result ... */
            if (msg_type == 0) /* SMS-DELIVER */
            {
                msg_type |= 0x04; /* see the msg_type_strings */
            }
        }
        else
        {
            msg_type |= ((pinfo->p2p_dir == P2P_DIR_RECV) ? 0x04 :
0x00);
        }

Thanx,
Jaap
