We are using IE & wget to download a pdf file down from an Apache web server
(on RHEL 6.x) which gets the file from an app server (also on RHEL 6.x).
What's the exact tcpdump command to run (& save the output to a file) which
I can specify the Windows PC & the web server's IP (as source IP)? Suppose the
port used is Tcp8443, how can I filter the tcpdump further by port?
I'm simulating to download that pdf file by issuing wget directly on the RHEL
web server (ie for eg: "wget http://localhost/full_URL_to_the_Pdf_file
isolate if the issue lies upstream (ie at webserver & app server as well as
the network between the web & app servers) or downstream (ie from the
users PC to the webserver & the networks between them): does this method
give a conclusive isolation at which legs of the networks/server the issue lies?
Anyone encountered any issue where PDF file is partially downloaded only
& what's the likely cause? Firewall, Apache webserver, IPS, F5 loadbalancer,
apps & app server (that hosts the Pdf file)?
