cable monitor command in uBR7223


We use a uBR7223 with IOS v 12.1(11b) here. In order to test the new cable monitor command we connected a linux system running snort to the fastethernet port and issued the commands as per

But we are not seeing any packet being forwaded via the ethernet interface.

We were actually playing on a spare CMTS here, so the system was not connected live to the internet but we plugged 2 cable modem to the cable interface and tried to watch the traffic through them. We did one more dirty trick. We have only one ethernet interface, so that port was connected to the a machine running network registrar till the modem came online and once the modem came up we removed the cable and plugged it to the packet capture machine.

If you want I can send in the exact commands that we gave, but i guess they are fine. Does any one else got caught in the same problem? Did we mix up some where? What solutuion do you suggest to add another ethernet interface to the cmts?

We are using MC12C in case that helps.
