How do the channel definitions for custom source and destination ip?



I used the sensor NetFlow V9 (Custom) to monitor network traffic on PRTG and defined a channel as follows(one "#" was not available in the posting and I used two "##" instead):

##20:HDWCN to Cloud SourceIP[] and DestinationIP[]

The top traffic in the Top Talkers is what I defined as this source and destination ip, but the channel does not show any data.

I want to filter the traffic in a channel between a specific source and destination ip, I should use expressions "and" instead of "or", is that right?

Can anyone help me with this problem? thanks in advance.
