Re: Span Switch

Reymon,

it is normal for a span session that you see broadcasts, multicasts, unknown unicasts of the same vlan, but you should not see other traffic

Re: Span Switch

hi beat,

thanks for your response. i havent configured span on the switch, i just run the wireshark and seen the traffic of the two host that were in the same vlan but different switch.

Re: Span Switch

Span is used to see traffic on that switch along with other broadcasts and unicast, however if you want to see the traffic on the same vlan, but different swtiches, you need to use Rspan.

Re: Span Switch

yes you are right, but i want to clarify if it is possible to see traffic of two host on the same vlan but different switch even i did'nt configure span on the switch. i just run the wireshark on the pc.

cheers!
