Remember that the port is normally open, except perhaps during the event.

The simplest way would be to login into both machines at the same time
and somehow make sense of it before diving into all the fw logging or
ICMP rules.

Don't you have access to both machines? Am I missing something?

Yes, you are missing that one of the machine is going into hibernation
the instant this happens. It is going into hibernation what triggers the
event, so it is not possible to log into it, and possibly, it is
impossible to rely on any particular application running.

A tcpdump would only run reliably on the destination machine, and it is
possible that it sees nothing wrong (the current hypothesis).
