Dynamically forward traffic to Sniffer VPN

The network is composed of several POPs interconnected via 3 core site.

A typical POP has a DSLAM having about 100 xDSL users connected to 7507 PE router via STM-1 Link. The PE is connected via POS to the core.

A Sniffer LAN is available at one of the core sites.

The question is:

Is it possible to force the data from a specific CE router to cross a specifc Router located in the core so that the traffic from that particular CE router can be sniffed. Keep in mind that has to be done on a temp basis and we do not want to affect the customers' VPN, or other VPNs.

I hope the question is clear enough.

Re: Dynamically forward traffic to Sniffer VPN

You’ll probably have to use static routes to force the traffic to take the path of the sniffer. Or policy based routing might be a good option too, but probably too complex for a temporary setup.
