Need help configuring 3com switch for websense port mirroring
Posted on 2008-10-31
I'm having trouble understanding the documentation for a 3com 4500 g switch when it comes to port mirroring. I'm trying to install websense security suite on it's own box and connect it to this switch. I assume at least on of the switch ports the websense box uses will mirror network traffic in and out of our sonic wall. Is this correct?
My problems are:
The documentation I downloaded refers only to the command line interface not the web interface.
I don't know the IP of the switch I need to use! I know that sounds bad, but I didn't set up the network and it's not documented. The switch does not appear to have a console port. Anyone know a piece of freeware that can detect network devices and give me an ip?
thanks for any help, I really need it!
