Enable SPAN (port mirroring) on all ports on Cisco Catalyst 3500 switch

Hi guys

Can someone tell me exactly what commands I need to issue to enable SPAN on all except one ports on my Cisco switch, the one port not included will be the monitor port.

I'm using Fa0/1 to Fa0/24, and also Gi0/1.

Thanks

u need to enter the interface configuration of the monitoring port & 
use port monitor command for all the other interface u want to monitor .

e.g if fa0/1 is the port u will use to monitor the

interface fa0/1
port monitor fat0/2
 port monitor fa0/3
         |
         |

 port monitor fa0/24

etc

Yeah - I already had that URL, but don't know anything about Cisco stuff.

I don't know what interface to specify in step 2... and I don't know how to specify all ports in step 3.

I need severe hand holding, hence the 500 points for this question.

anupnellip, thanks.

does this look right for monitoring ports 2 to 12 on port 1?

interface FastEthernet0/1
 port monitor FastEthernet0/2
 port monitor FastEthernet0/3
 port monitor FastEthernet0/4
 port monitor FastEthernet0/5
 port monitor FastEthernet0/6
 port monitor FastEthernet0/7
 port monitor FastEthernet0/8
 port monitor FastEthernet0/9
 port monitor FastEthernet0/10
 port monitor FastEthernet0/11
 port monitor FastEthernet0/12

(taken from show running-config).
