I have a workstation on this switch that is running WireShark and I need to get packets to it. However the moment I turn on port mirroring the station loses IP connectivity to the network. I tried Rx only, Tx only and both and all three settings knock the workstation off the IP network. Is there something I am missing?
Also, I noticed that I can only mirror 4 source ports to this one target port. I would like to select pretty much all the ports as source port. Why can't I do this? I was previously using an older DLink switch that allowed me to mirror all ports and I am pretty sure that other switches like the Cisco 2900 series let you select all ports as source ports.
I have this problem too.
