Problem with input packet errors (WS-C2950G-48-EI)

Hello! I keep getting information on my switch port input errors, but cannot figure out, what kind of device is creating those errors. Is there any way to see on WS-C2950G-48-EI device, what device in ethernet network is sending error packets. I would like to see the MAC of the device. Is it possible for WS-C2950G-48-EI?

I can put *NIX/Windows PC box on the network, to check for errors from "inside", but then I have to know, what kind of software I have to use? Is there any packet sniffers on the net, which collects error packets on switched network?

Thanks.

You can check this document/configuration about SPAN and RSPAN in a Cisco switch:

Will You Be GDPR Compliant by 5/28/2018?

GDPR? That's a regulation for the European Union. But, if you collect data from customers or employees within the EU, then you need to know about GDPR and make sure your organization is compliant by May 2018. Check out our preparation checklist to make sure you're on track today!

You can configure a span on your switch port to analyse the traffic which come through this interface with a basic sniffer. See what kind of traffic is generated...

(sorry for my multiple posts)

We have Repotec RP-1708K switch connected to 2950 switch port, and yes I tried to shutdown/enable fa0/27 port on 2950 switch. I even set manually speed - 100, duplex full, but this didn't help either.

Could you please write your last post more specific, I could try this option?! Thanks.

OK, I will look in Cisco document. Do you know, if even one error packet comes in Cisco 2950 port, it resets all mac-address-table for that port? Is there any option, where I could set not to reset arp table on input packet error on port?
