Hi,

How can I initiate a capture packet on an ASA 7x firewall using the CLI? I'm struggling with this for hours now and I seem to be lost somewhere.

I need to capture data that originates from inside host 10.31.3.103 to outside host 213.55.147.20 > TCP/2000.

Any help would be very appreciated!

Hi,

try the following, create an access-list that permits that traffic, e.g.:

access-list capture_list permit tcp host 10.31.3.103 host 213.55.147.20 eq 2000
access-list capture_list permit tcp host  213.55.147.20 eq 2000 host 10.31.3.103

capture  capture_list access-list  capture_list interface inside

hope this helps

Is this the problem you are trying to troubleshoot?

Just an addendum to Max' comment ...  I'd always run the capture on both sides of the firewall, also adding a buffer size and increasing the packet size in case you need to look into what actually is happening inside the packets can occasionally help, so:

capture INSIDEDATA access capture_list int inside buf 1024000 packet-length 1500
capture OUTSIDEDATA access capture_list int outside buf 1024000 packet-length 1500

Please note that you may need to extend the access list to match the outside NAT IP of the internal box.

Once you have the capture running, check with "show capture" to see whether any packets have been captured, or "show capture INSIDEDATA" to see what packets have been transfered ... or use the web interface with "https://ASA_IP/capture/INSIDEDATA/pcap" to download a Wireshark-compatible PCAP dump for further analysis ...
