Port Mirroring on HP Procurve 2650

Posted on 2011-10-10

I know how to configure port mirroring on a Cisco Switch, but not on a HP Switch, which is what my customer is using.  I want to install a sniffer on the network to troubleshoot network slowness.  I want to mirror the port on the HP switch that the Pix plugs into and want to assign the destination port to the port that my laptop is in.  I have telnet access only to the switch.  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.  Is the HP 2650 capable of doing this.  If so can someone provide me the command line on how to set this up.  Thanks.
