Cisco SG300 Port mirroring - Can the MIRROR TARGET be used as a LAN port as well as a MIRROR port?

Does anyone know if the Cisco SG300 can be used to mirror a network port, where:

1. The SOURCE port is a specific port on the switch (TX and RX)
2. The DESTINATION port is a specific port on the switch
3. The DESTINATION port is also used for the device to access the network?

While I am mirroring, the device in the network port will need to make use of the network.  I am aware that this traffic will be in the capture, but it is necessary to interact with the network while capturing.  I'd rather NOT do this with a 2nd NIC in the system that I'm capturing with....the switch that we WERE using was able to do this (ADTRAN 1234).

Thanks!

I doubt it.  No other Cisco switch supports the target of a mirror session to be used as a "normal" LAN port also.
