I have a VMware View Security server that periodically 'pings' or communicates to a View Connect server on 8009. There are connections shown in Netstat:

    [ws_TunnelService.exe]
  TCP    10.3.0.13:55487        10.1.0.21:4001         ESTABLISHED
 [ws_TunnelService.exe]
  TCP    10.3.0.13:55764        10.1.0.21:8009         ESTABLISHED

The port 4001 traffic shows up in a wireshark trace:

238 26.776074000    10.1.0.21   10.3.0.13   TCP 73  4001→53416 [PSH, ACK] Seq=30 Ack=135 Win=4025 Len=19
239 26.778194000    10.3.0.13   10.1.0.21   TCP 2814    53416→4001 [ACK] Seq=135 Ack=49 Win=32597 Len=2760

But the 8009 traffic does not. I do tcp.port=8009 filter and get nothing. I have evidence that traffic should be going across in a view log file (from the 10.3.0.13 server):

2014-12-02T20:10:05.271-05:00 DEBUG (0550-0484) <AJP connection pool monitor> [a] /10.1.0.21:8009

2014-12-02T20:10:05.474-05:00 TRACE (0550-0484) <AJP connection pool monitor> [b] Total pool size: 6

It looks like the traffic is being tunneled... but my question is why is the 4001 traffic showing up in a trace and the 8009 is not??

Thanks much for any ideas. I can provide more info if needed...
