I have no idea what sort of sniffers exist(ed) for HP-UX. But based on
timing, it sounds like you need something off box.
I keep an old hub around just for things like this. Machine in
question, uplink, and the sniffer. Then I start tcpdump or wireshark on
the sniffer before booting the machine in question.
I've learned to trust the bits on the wire. At least until I have
something to suggest that they are corrupted.
