This is only from checking after the connection was dead. By the way,
I just had to remotely reboot the new machine because the window
manager locked up, however the old PC are still listing the defunct
connections after this.

I can of course keep on copying for testing purposes, but then I would like to
be able to dump only that single tcp connection, any tips of how to do that?
I found nothing specific in the manuals of wireshark and tcpdump. Of course
it is possible to capture everything and filter afterwards, but since I will be
transferring lots of data the logs will get huge and I would not like to have
even additional traffic inside...

I have not done any specific selection myself. On old_pc: bic, new_pc: cubic.
