I have an easy question. I want to sniff a network port on my 3560 switch. I was going to use SPAN to repeat the traffic to another interface, plug my laptop into that interface and watch the traffic.
My question is, when I plug my laptop into the SPAN'd port, do I give it an IP address of its own or do I give it the IP address of the machine being monitored?
Also, if there is a better way other than SPAN and a Laptop with sniffing software, recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks!
