Microsoft Network Monitor - Setting Filters

I need to set up a filter on our web server in Microsoft's Net Monitor that will show all requests to our SQL server to help us to resolve a problem we are having with some of our .Net applications.  The SQL server is behind our firewall.  How do I configure the filter to show requests from our web server to the SQL server?  I've tried using
IPv4.Address ==  192.xxx.xxx..xxx AND Tcp.port == xxxx. This filter doesn't capture what I need.  Any advice on how to configure the filter would be appreciated.

I have not used MS Net Monitor. I usually use Wireshark for packet sniffing. Though you need to filter the IP Address and TCP Port 1433 for SQL Server connections. Just for reference you can check the Wireshark site also;

Thanks for your suggestion.  I was able to get it to work finally by just using the TCP Port 1433.  I used a filter Tcp.port == 1433 and that did the trick.  It showed all requests going to our SQL server.
