As stated in the Manual. (link below)

You can add host or conversation filters to limit the report data to specific hosts or
conversations, but you cannot add both host and conversation filters. You can
apply a single type of filter or you can use one of the following valid filter combinations:
  • Protocols/Protocol Groups + ToS/ToS Groups
  • Protocols/Protocol Groups + Hosts
  • Protocols/Protocol Groups + Conversations
  • ToS/ToS Groups + Hosts
  • ToS/ToS Groups + Conversations
