Hi there,

If I install LanGuardian on Hyper-V with a dedicated NIC and connect it to the mirroring port of our Cisco switch,
can I still view the traffic the same as if I installed it on a dedicated machine?

When deployed in a Hyper V environment, LANGuardian will capture and analyze traffic only within the virtual network. External SPAN / Port Mirroring can be connected to Hyper-V (2012/R2) instance by enabling Port Mirroring on Virtual Switch, and configuring it as a source for external SPAN traffic.
