A way to observe commands and responses

Is there some "switch" (e.g. a command line option) that would log the commands sent by the SSDR UI to the FlexLIb Api and vice versa?

I'm looking through the C# FlexLIb API and trying to understand how it is used by the SSDR UI. Without access to the source for the UI it's a bit of a mystery at times. It would be helpful to see a log of the activity.

I suppose I could recompile FlexLIb API and add logging into it but I'm guessing that it might already exist (in some undocumented dark corner).

Wireshark is the easiest way to do this.  Find one communication between the radio and SmartSDR (one TCP packet) and right click on that packet and say "follow TCP conversation."  This will bring up the complete communications of command, response and status information between the client and the radio.
