HTTPS traffic being classified as RTMP?

Hey all,


First time poster, long time lurker.  I have an odd issue with certain traffic being classified as RTMP.  


Our guest wireless and corporate wireless exist in different zones.  Their address space is different, too.  We have two separate policies for corp and guest traffic, permitting http/https outbound to our external zone interface any any destination address.


What is odd is that some traffic hits the correct corp policy id, but other traffic hits a policy that is supposed to be for RTMP traffic:


Src Zone: Internal

Source: Any

Dst Zone: External

Destination: Any

Application: rtmp

Service: application-default

Action: allow


Only some traffic hits this policy, though.  For example I'm able to go to and it loads fine, hitting the right policy.  A packet capture shows a full three way handshake on the right policy, but only SYN and retransmit packets on the RTMP policy.


Any idea why only some of our https traffic is hitting that policy?
