You should learn a bit about TCP protocol.

S is for SYN (synchronize)
P is for PUSH
F is for FIN
. is for nothing

Pakets are:

3 way hand shake initiate TCP connection
client > server SYN
sever > client SYN ACK
client > server ACK

client > server send data
server > client ACK and send data
client > server ACK

client > server FIN
server > client ACK
server > cient FIN
client > server ACK

ACk means acknowledge.
