    3.3. Network Tracing Log

    If this does not help, or if the certificate is not downloaded automatically, ask to close Acronis Backup to Cloud (Acronis Backup & Recovery Online), then reproduce the issue and get Wireshark log. Note that for issues related to Acronis Backup to Cloud (Acronis Backup & Recovery Online) the WireShark (general instructions Collecting PCAP Logs) should be collected in a particular manner. The correct way to collect the WireShark log is the following:
    - start WireShark utility
    - go to I nterfaces - Capture
    - select the necessary interface from the list
    - go to Options

    - in the options, tick "Limit each packet to" and type in 64
    - in Capture Filter type tcp port 443 or tcp port 44445
    - in case you know that backup will not fail immediately, it means WireShark should be executed during some extended time (20 minutes +) it is a good idea to write the information to a file right after start. For this, use the option Capture File (select destination and type in a name of the file)
