Correct Answer by royalblues about 8 years 2 months ago

match protocol http mime "*.jpeg"

All http mime files having an extension *.jpeg will be matched

match protocol http host cisco*

Will match the http packets with the hostname string. The * at the end of the string match cisco at the beginning of the string

match protocol fasttrack file-transfer "*cisco*"

This matches all the fast track protocols with the character Cisco. * at both ends means match if it is present anywhere in the string
