Re: switching

Hi,

What platform and type of software (IOS or CatOS) are you running on the switch in question.

For example if you had a 6500 running IOS, here's the configuration guide for configuring SPAN:

http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/lan/cat6000/122sx/swcg/span.htm#wp1030170

The syntax will be the same for all IOS based switches, although each platform will have specific limitations on how many sessions you can have, etc.

HTH,

Bobby

Re: switching

Hi,

Thanks for the clarification.

This is very possible on the 2950 running 12.1

First, here's the Configuration Guide:

http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/lan/cat2950/12122ea5/2950scg/swspan.htm#wp1258110

Here's a sample output from a lab switch. In this example, I'm monitoring ports fa0/7 and fa0/8 with the SPAN port being fa0/9:

switch_5(config)#monitor session 1 source int fa0/7 - 8 both

switch_5(config)#monitor session 1 destination int fa0/9

switch_5(config)#end

switch_5#show mon

5w6d: %SYS-5-CONFIG_I: Configured from console by consoleitor

Session 1

---------

Source Ports:

RX Only: None

TX Only: None

Both: Fa0/7-8

Destination Ports: Fa0/9

The 2950 has a limit of one SPAN session at a time. Please refer to the configuration guide for other restrictions.

regards,

Bobby
