An installation query was sent to the NetFort Support Team recently about deploying LANGuardian virtually & monitoring a physical Switches traffic.

In order to monitor a physical SPAN Port from a virtual LANGuardian - A single intermediary virtual switch is required.

This virtual switch is required to allow promiscuous mode (Port mirroring for virtual appliance).
It shall need to be connected to the NIC which is connected to the SPAN Port.

This will then enable the SPAN session to capture traffic from a physical switch & LANGuardian can then read that traffic.
