Logging has to be enabled on the Transport Server as well as the Connectors. You can set this in EMC by right clicking the Transport Server in the list of servers in Server>Hub Transport, and selecting properties, or you can go to powershell and run this:
get-transportserver | Set-TransportServer -IntraOrgConnectorProtocolLoggingLevel verbose

Open in new window

To enable protocol logging from the Exchange console ( EMC ):
Expand the Server Configuration. | Hub Transport node.
Select the Hub Transport server you want to configure, and then select the Receive Connector -> Properties.
On the General tab, change the Protcol logging level to Verbose, as shown in the screenshot below.

Using the EMC it became clear that the logs were in another directory and working well.
Thanks for your help.
