It will greatly aid the analysis of the captures if the user can tells us the following:

1. Time of event(s)
2. Host/Terminal IP address
3. Specific Messages on terminal when event happens

Zebra Enterprise Support can provide a set of files to add netlog capture on terminals. When netlog is installed, the terminal will accept the following set of commands to begin and end netlog capture:

  • netlogctl start
  • netlogctl stop

By default, these commands will create a file (or set of files) in the root folder with the name netlog0.cap (and netlog1.cap). Once one file is full, the second will be overwritten. There is more information available on netlog command line switches available from Microsoft: Read More>>


This tool logs ALL stack activity. When you active sync, you are using PPP. The PPP traffic from active sync seems to overwrite rather than append data to the netlogx.cap files.

You must stop the trace to copy the file off the device. You must stop the trace stop the trace before active sync, or you will loose the event you just captured.
