RSPAN Across 2 CATOS 6513's With SUP720

Good Day,

I have been requested to connect a WEBSENSE device to monitor Internet traffic going to out PIX's. I have 2 6513's running CATOS, connected via a trunk on the SUP720's. The SUP720's are running in HRSP.

The PIX's are connected to port 3/20 on both 6513's. I have already did a span on the 6513A, but am finding it diffcult to understand documentation to RPSAN to the 6513B port 3/20. Any information, configuration examples, or directions on where to look would be appreciated.

Thank you in advance for you assistance.

Dave Holder

Re: RSPAN Across 2 CATOS 6513's With SUP720

Thank you, but I want to have 3/21 on both the 6513's to be span'ed. It seems I can not have SPAN on one and RPSAN on the other going to the WEBSENSE port on the 6513A. Or do I have to do RPSAN on both switches?




Re: RSPAN Across 2 CATOS 6513's With SUP720

You can setup rspan source port/vlan on each switch to forward monitored traffic to the RSPAN vlan.

Then on the switch you want, you can configure the RSPAN destination port. I assume that's the websense port.

Or you could you do the way you have proposed. either way should be fine.
