Here is a senario, would I still be able to effectively monitor the network traffic?
I have two managed HP switches stacked together with most of the clients and servers on it, I have another unmanaged HP switch with some clients on it, that unmanaged switch is connected to the managed stack with a cat5 cable. I would imagine this would work fine since the traffic from the unmanaged switch would flow through the managed stack, and into the monitor port that the sniffer is connected to.
Thanks in advance!
