Span on 7206VXR for Content filtering

We have 2 -7206VXR Routers w/enterprise ios software, each with subscribers and outbound internet connections on T1 and T3 circuits that need content filtering. We would like to use a a 8e6 Technologies (formerly XStop) R2000 Content Filtering Device for this. It's recommended use is in invisible mode using a span port for intercepting traffic. Is it possible for a 7206 router span traffic to a specific ethernet port? If not what do you think the best bet for this would be? I was thinking perhaps rerouting all traffic that needed to be filtered out one 7206 ethernet port and back through another ethernet port on the same router, what about that idea? There is not clear inlive path to put the filter in since the customer and internet circuits are on the same routers.


Re: Span on 7206VXR for Content filtering

Span is a feature on Catalyst switches, not routers. Might look into putting an intermediary 2900XL somewhere into the mix for this purpose.
