Netflow 5 Filters



I've got Netflow partially working, but I'm not able to get filters going. Our Cisco 6509 device exports flows from several interfaces, and I want to filter them based on "Interface". The interface I'm after is "Vlan899". In the filter field, I'm not sure what to put, but I've tried the following and none seem to work:
Interface[569] (This is the snmp index next to the interface traffic for this VLAN as discovered by PRTG)

Can anyone provide me some guidance as to what I should be putting in here?

netflow netflow-v5 prtg-7

I'm afraid the [Interface]-Filter criteria is not available for Netflow v5, it's only available for Netflow v9, please see https://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg8/xflow_packet_sniffer_filter_rules.htm

Best Regards.
