    What are you trying to do?

    You can't mirror a port on one switch to a port on a different switch.

    The best you can do it mirror to a port on the same switch:
    C2950#configure terminal
    C2950(config)#monitor session 1 source interface fastethernet 0/2         <----port to be mirrored
    C2950(config)#monitor session 1 destination interface fastethernet 0/3  <----destination of mirrored traffic
