Hi,

I have the printer connected on the cisco 3750 switch port. Is it possible to span that printer port to any LAPTOP or PC from the same switch.

That print talks to the Cisco ACS. I need to capture the communication with that printer.
To do that what configuration change i needs to be done.

Thanks.

I can't.  You have to look that up in the Docs of the particular Brand and Model of switch you are using.   I can only point you in the right direction, but you'll have to work out the exact details for what you are running.   If you now know what you are looking for it should not be that difficult to figure out.
