~ :Thanks for pointing that out to me. I was able to log port 514 UDP packets

~ :It is the same for the rest?

Well, UDP is connection-less protocol, so such thing as `session' just do
not exist there. The code says the same thing:


FILE *OpenSessionFile(Packet *p, char *filename)
    char log_path[STD_BUF];
    char session_file[STD_BUF]; /* name of session file */
    if ((p->iph->ip_proto != IPPROTO_TCP) || (p->frag_flag) || p->tcph == NULL)
        return NULL;
