Re: Port mirroring on 3550's in stack

Hello,

Yes, what you want is possible with RSPAN.

Create a RSPAN VLAN, let's say VLAN 500 on both switches.

conf t

vlan 500

remote-span

end

Configure the port you want to copy frames from into the RSPAN VLAN.

monitor session 1 source interface FastEthernet0/1

monitor session 1 destination remote vlan 500 reflector-port FastEthernet0/24

Finally configure a session that copies the frames from the RSPAN VLAN into the port with sniffer attached.

monitor session 2 source remote vlan 500

monitor session 2 destination interface FastEthernet0/5

Verify your configuration.

show monitor session all

Re: Port mirroring on 3550's in stack

Hi Leon

Thanks for your reply. I have small confusion here. My problem is

Switch 1 and switch 2 (3550's) are connected in a stack using gig ports. Now I want to moniter ports fa0/1 of both the switches on fa0/4 of switch 1. So is it possible to keep fa0/1 of switch 1 in the RSPAN vlan. My IDS is connected to port fa0/4 for switch 1. SO i want to send all the traffic on fa0/1 of both the switches in stack to fa0/4 of switch 1. If so could you please let me know the configuration.

Thanks for your help.

Hello Bhanu,

The configuration is quite simple.

Switch 1

vlan 500

remote-span

exit

monitor session 1 source interface FastEthernet0/1

monitor session 1 destination remote vlan 500 reflector-port FastEthernet0/24

monitor session 2 source remote vlan 500

monitor session 2 destination interface FastEthernet0/4

Switch 2

vlan 500

remote-span

exit

monitor session 1 source interface FastEthernet0/1

monitor session 1 destination remote vlan 500 reflector-port FastEthernet0/24

Switchport Fa0/1 frames are copied onto VLAN 500 by reflector-port Fa0/24 on both Switch 1 and Switch 2. On Switch 1 the frames are copied from VLAN 500 to Fa0/4 where your IDS resided.
