I have a CISCO switch that I would like to set up monitoring.  I have done this on other CISCO switches -- some of the commands are not available.  For example -- MONITOR is not available?  I am attaching a sh ver in hopes that is will help

I found this:  Note: The above commands are not supported on Catalyst 2950 with Cisco IOS Software Release 12.0(5.2)WC(1) and with any software earlier than Cisco IOS Software Release 12.1(6)EA2. To configure SPAN on a Catalyst 2950 with software earlier than Cisco IOS Software Release 12.1(6)EA2, refer to the Enabling Switch Port Analyzer section of this document:  - http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/473/41.html#topic5

So, go here:  http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/lan/cat2950/2950_wc/scg/scg_mgmt.htm#xtocid1112011

And click on the "Enabling Switch Port Analyzer".
That work for you?  Thanks!
