How can I see the transactions between two hosts that are trying to talk to each other over certain ports .I am trying to find out ports needed to be opened for successful connection .I have tried "sh log" but I do not see those two hosts..The following is the log config I have on this PIX-6.3(5)

logging on
logging monitor errors
logging buffered debugging
logging trap warnings
logging host inside

    Using ASDM its easy for ASA: For ASA you create an ACL with permit ip for both host and check the ports they hit. Create acl for the known ports.

    Pix i guess would be the same. But i have not tried.

    Hope this helps
