When troubleshooting networking issues, tcpdump can be a quite useful to help you understand what is going on.

On the Unified Access Gateway, this tool is not available "out-of-the-box". However, it can be easily installed by running a script that is available on the server (when I tested it, I was running UAG version 3.3).


Run the following commands to install it:


cd /etc/vmware/gss-support/

After the installation is complete, you should be able to run tcpdump commands on the server.
