Sniffing telnet session on a switch
Posted on 2004-08-12
Is it true that you cannot sniff telnet sessions on a switch. For example if I want to sniff the telnet session I make from my Laptop to the cisco router. If my laptop that is going to make a telnet session to cisco session is connected to port 1 on switch the cisco router is connected to port 2 on the switch and my sniffing laptop is connected to port 3, then if the laptop is going to make a telnet session to router can my sniffing laptop capture the traffic in between them ? Or say if I am connected to completely different switch but still on the same network what will be the behavior then ?
