I am trying to do the following configuration for Websense to mirror traffic from our firewall.  The switch is a Catalyst 4506 running /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-priority:99; mso-style-qformat:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:11.0pt; font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif"; mso-ascii-font-family:Calibri; mso-ascii-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-theme-font:minor-fareast; mso-hansi-font-family:Calibri; mso-hansi-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-bidi-font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-bidi-theme-font:minor-bidi;} cat4000-i9s-mz.122-25.EWA14.bin

The firewall is currently on port Fa3/1 and needs to be mirrored to each of the following ports: Fa2/34, Fa2/35, Fa2/36

The firewall currently resides in VLAN3 (an infrastructure VLAN between their core switch and the firewall) and the mirror ports all belong to VLAN5.  We use Websense in VMware so we need all three ports to see the traffic based on which server the VM is currently on.

Is this possible? If so - how can we do it?
