Each protocol can be used in a particular case. GRE is used for virtual private networking, AH and ESP are used to secure IP traffic. The difference between 'Any' and 'Any IP based' is as follows:

'Any' means really anything going through the network card (including non-IP protocols). In practice this means it will catch widely used ARP protocol, low level LLC and PPP frames, and so on.

'Any IP based' means any protocol on the IP layer (that is TCP/UDP/ICMP as well as upper level protocols HTTP, POP3, ICQ and so on.
