RSPAN Help

I am looking to remotly monitor the traffic on a port that is at a remote site (our WAN port) using RSPAN. I wanted to know if there is a piece of software that will allow me to look at the traffic in real-time (or very close to it) from a place other then the site that is being monitored. Does Cisco Works LMS allow this? Thank you!

Re: RSPAN Help

LMS does not provide this functionalilty. It used to when they bundled nGenius RTM in the product, but that was dropped early last year.

You can craft some solution out of using NetFlow accounting and/or IP accounting; but that's just flows, not the actual traffic that you'd get.

You can put a host out there and span a port to it and use Ethereal locally to examine the traffic captured remotely with pcap (Windows hosts) or tcpdump (*nix hosts) (all open source products).

Hope this helps. Please rate useful posts.
