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 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...

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.

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

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?
