I use a laptop like many other techs out there and use sniffing products for various troubleshooting techniques. I was wondering if there was such a thing as a piece of equipment that would allow me to snap onto any network cable and establish a network connection and then troubleshoot that particular cable or workstation. I am running into alot of unmanaged cheap switches and have a heck of a time sniffing out the problem machines, particularly when I am hunting down a trojan. If I could just clip onto a wire, then sniff that cable, it would save me a ton of time onsite.
Thanks a million for any sugestions.
