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)
