Do Procurve 4000s support bi-directional port monitoring (for Websense)

I am setting up Websense on a network and have the tech from Websense. He is wondering if the switch we have supports bi-derectional port monitoring. I vaguely understand what he is getting at - all taffic has to be monitored on the port that the server connects to (that hosts Websense) and it needs to be ingress/egress capable as opposed to uni directional.

Anyone know the answer???

Thanks in advance,

Jerry

The 4000 supports monitoring either via VLAN or port selection.  You just need to make sure that the VLAN or port(s) you monitor "sees" all traffic from the LAN to the internet.  Traffic monitoring will be bi-directional.  If the 4000 is the last switch on your network that connects to your ISP, then all you need to do is monitor that port.

Thanks. I actually got the answer from HP a couple days ago but you are correct. It does indeed support bi-directional port monitoring.
