I was hoping to streamline this configuration. I have a 2950 that I would like to use for monitoring traffic by placing in-line anywhere.
Here is the catch, I do not know what Vlan it will be plugged into at anytime
I would put a PC with Monitor software on Port 1, Plug the server I would like to monitor on Port 2, then the uplink on Port 3.
The uplink could be Vlan X , where X changes depending on what segment I plug it into. I would rather not have to configure the Vlan on the switch everytime I want to use it. I am also hoping that the mirror config will stay.
My goal is to have this set up so all I need to do is plug it in and put my sniffer on port 1, the item I want to monitor on port 2 and the uplink on port 3.
Like a dumb-hub, which I do not have one.
