Can I use IDSM-2 to monitor in inline-mode multiple pair of vlans?

Unanswered Question
Nov 12th, 2007

my customer wants to have IDSM-2 in inline mode for monitoring VLANs that are routed through the PIX firewalls.

These VLANs are defined on the Cat 6500 switch where the IDSM-2 resides.

They want to have one external vlan to be paired with 4 internal vlans.

As far as I know the inline VLAN pairs configuration only support one to one vlan pairing.

What's the best of doing this?

I have this problem too.
