Traffic tapping

Fri Jan 04, 2019 2:41 pm

Sveiki visiem!

We just received our MikroTik RB2011U and we are trying to set up port mirroring for traffic sniffing purposes, being unsuccessful so far.

Our network consists of 4 wired ethernet devices which we would like to spy on, possibly by mirroring all their traffic to another port of the device.
However, the router won't let us mirror ports from different switches (i.e., ports on switch2 to ports on switch1). Furthermore, mirroring is not supported on switch2 itself.
How can we do this? Does the router allow for "software" mirroring between ports on different switches? We are currently using ethernet port 1 for Internet connection, having just 4 free slots on switch 1, leaving no room for the spy device on switch1.

Any help will be appreciated.

Javier.
