Check if you have "promiscuous mode is enabled " for portgroup or you have configured the ESXi mac address (read the below article):



Also after that if there are still issues do policy trace to see if the policy trace to confirm that the security policy allows you:



If the policy allows you and there are still issues, do pcap capture to see if the traffic reaches the firewall at all:
