RVS4000 Port Mirroring

Unanswered Question
Mar 18th, 2010

When setting up port mirroring it appears that only the RX for the port is mirrored.  Most devices that I've worked with allow for "[rx|tx|both]" options on the mirrored port.  Is there a way to setup the RVS4000 to mirror both TX and RX for a single port?

I have this problem too.

Though this is straight from the administration guide:

Mirror Source Use this to enable or disable source port mirroring for each port on
the router. To enable source port mirroring on a port, check the box next to that
port. To disable source port mirroring on a port, leave the box unchecked. The
default is disabled.
Mirror Port Select the mirror destination port from the drop-down menu.

However if you are not given the options by default it should be set at both.

I will try to confirm this and get back to you.

Thank you,

I too am experiencing the exact problem. This is extremely frustrating when port mirroring was the primary feature for which I purchased the product. In fact the only reason that I replaced my functional existing router was so that I could mirror and examine external traffic. Cisco, please inform us how to achieve full port mirroring or how soon a firmware update addressing this blatant problem will be released.
