First of all, you need to capture the packets the remote machine sends and receives. Maybe this URL can help with the basic setup to do that:

If all else fails you could install Wireshark on the remote machine, but that is always a "last resort" action since it will not always give correct results. Maybe you could also use rpcapd, which is part of WinPCAP (if your remote machine is a Windows box), but while allowing convenient remote captures there are some drawbacks and additional Wireshark configuration work to be done.
