I would recommend just using the packet capture feature on pfSense (in the "Diagnostics" menu, "Packet Capture") and download the capture file afterwards to look at it in Wireshark. You don't have a GUI in pfSense anyway, so I doubt you could install Wireshark.

The other option you have is to connect to the box via SSH (or locally) and use TCPdump.
