How can I track connection attempts to HANA server?

When connecting to a HANA server (HANA Express Edition 2 in a VM) through HANA Client libraries, I always get the error "authentication failed" (same for Python, Java and Excel; see https://answers.sap.com/questions/386047/authentication-failed-when-connecting-to-sap-hana.html).

To find out where and why the request is declined, I want to observe or backtrack all connection attempts.

Is there an appropriate log file or a trace I need to activate for checking incoming connection attempts? What could be the component that is responsible for this particular error?

    The last sub-chapter of chapter 3.8 in the SAP HANA Trouble-Shooting Guide should help you to set up the required trace.
