packet capture for AWS and on-prem firewall


How do I setup a packet capture in AWS to capture packets from my on-prem firewall? I want to see if traffic from a specific public IP address is making it from my firewall to my AWS IP address. I have tried following the instructions for creating traffic mirroring targets, filters, and sessions. Please let me know what other information is needed. Thanks,

If you don't really need the data packets, you should take a look at VPC Flow Logs. You can turn it on for an individual Instance (ENI) and publish the data to CloudWatch Logs.
