Solved SPAN port setup for source & destination interface

Specs: Windows XP, 4GB
I have a quick question about to configure SPAN port on cisco switch, is it necessary to configure individual ports (source and destination port ) configure as mode access and belong to any VLAN?

for example:
monitor session 1 source interface Gi0/8
monitor session 1 destination interface Gi0/7

what is configuration of gi0/8 and gi0/7?

config t
interface gi0/8 and gi0é7
switchport mode access

is it good enough? do they need any vlan config?

We use a hardware solution where I work that might interest you. It's an "ethernet tap" and it's made by NetOptics.

You might want to take a look at their products, or another like it by a different manufacturer. They're certainly a lot more user friendly than doing a span (mirror) port on a cisco switch.

How charged with punishments the scroll,

I am the captain of my soul.
