Create a copy of the whole packet traffic that flows through the network (port mirroring or switched port analyzer)

Giuseppe Jackson

Hello,

 

I have a question about how to create a copy of the whole packet traffic that flows through the network, by working on the Project editor..

To this aim, I want to make the port mirroring.

Figure 1 shows a scenario with 4 VLANs.

How can I set the attributes of a switch with Layer3 module (e.g., S2 Lay3) in order to obtain the port mirroring?

 

I think that I need to set the destination span port on the switch with Layer 3 module and I have to create a connection by a link Ethernet_adv between this span port to a workstation on which I want to send a copy of the whole packet traffic that flows through the network.

Is it correct? Anyone knows how to make it?

 

Thank you so much!
