Span port with Pix 501?

I want to use an open source IDS for my small network. I have a Pix 501 and I would like to span one of the ports from the integrated four port switch so my IDS can see all the traffic. Is this possible or is the integrated switch too basic? I have a Cisco 3550 in storage that I could use if needed, but I really don?t have a good place to put it. Thanks in advance!

Re: Span port with Pix 501?

Hi .. yes infact the swith on the 501 is basically for extending your port density limits.

I suggest you connecting the desired port to a hub and then plug the IDS to the hub. The IDS will then get all the packets ..

I hope it helps ... please rate it if it does !!!
