2950 spam port

Hi,

I am trying to configure a spam port using a 2950 switch.

eg. PC1 send a packet to PC2. I want PC3 to get a copy as well.

I understand that spam port is able to do the job.

My question is --- can PC3 still allow normal TCP/IP operation. eg allow others to ftp in or send out email.

Million thanks for an answer or work around.

Re: 2950 spam port

Hi,

you can use port monitor command .For example if you want to monitor fa0/0 and fa0/1 from fa0/3.Use port monitor fastethernet 0/0,port monitor fastethernet 0/1 commands in fast ethernet 0/3.It will capture all the traffic flowing via fa0/0,fa0/.1.then you can use sniffer software or some other tool to get the packet details.

hope this will help

Re: 2950 spam port

Currently, SPAN destination ports on 2950's cannot also function as normal switch ports. Hopefully a future IOS release will eliminate this restriction.
