Re : Packet Capture

Hi,

I need to do a packet capture on Machine A and send the data to Machine B on a Cisco 4506 switch.

I plan to use wireshark as the protocol analyzer to do this.

I would like to confirm that the below way that I intend to do works :-

i) On the 4506, start a monitor session source for machine A and monitor session destination

   for Machine B.

ii) On the Wireshark, all I have to do is start the capture right to see all the packets coming to and from machine A.

Would this be correct ? or am I missing anything else here ?

Pls advice,

Cheers,

SN.
