Re: SPAN ports.

When you configure SPAN, the destination port no longer passes traffic. Instead it mirrors the traffic from the source address. DHCP requests / responses will no longer pass through this port.

Hope this helps

Re: SPAN ports.

I addition to the post by Martin, You can use the ingress feature to enable the traffic on the destination port.

Re: SPAN ports.

Do you know why I can connect to a SPAN destination port to remote control my portable running sniffer software if I enable ingress forwarding for that monitor session destination port?

This only works with a NIC with enahnced drivers I got from the Sniffer software developers Network General. If I have a portable otherwise connected to the destination port even with ingress enabled I can't connect to it.
