In my trace which I had analyzed as a proof of concept, HTTP was
perfectly recognized. I had used port 8888, while my Wireshark's HTTP
protocol seems to be configured to
"80,3128,3132,5985,8080,8088,11371,1900,2869,2710". So Wireshark should
be smart enough...

If I take this PCAP, and add 5558 to Wireshark's config, there are no
headers either. They weren't even captured, as I assumed in my other
