WebSense Express with multiple Cisco 3500 switches

Posted on 2009-07-13

I have multiple Cisco 3500 swtiches in my network environment, and I recently purchased WebSense Express to URL filter our environment.

Does anyone have the correct commands to setup a Cisco 3548, 3512, 3524 for port monitoring so that the WebSense Express can "see" the traffic on the network?

WebSense is setup on my 3524 on port 14, my ASA 5500 is two switches away from Websense on the 3524.  The 3524 connects to a 3512 via a GBIC GigE interface, and from the 3512, the 3512 uses a second GBIC GigE interface to connect up to the 3548.

I know the command on the 3524 for WebSense should be
3524>conf t
3524>int fast 0/14
3524>port monitoring

But that still does not see the traffic.  What are the other things I need to setup on the Cisco switches to handle this?

Thank you,
