Hello Paul,

I think this is possible and if I remember correctly I did this several years ago.

My only concern is that a router should only process traffic destinated to its MAC address.

You may need to tweak the configuration to put the port in promiscuos mode or you will not be able to emulate a sniffer.

I think in my setup the router was on the path of live traffic or placed as end device in the lab chain.

Hope to help

Thanks for the reply.

rmon promiscuous

is supposed to let the router gather rmon stats on all packets it sees. Does anyone know if this will enable netflow statistics for the same traffic, even if it doesn't flow back out of the router?
