Would you happen to have a list of Dell PowerConnects that do VLAN mirroring? Is SPAN the same as VLAN mirroring?

First up SPAN is a propriety feature and it can be used to port or VLAN mirroring. Other switch vendors have included similar features and they call it port mirroring or in the case of 3Com, roving port analysis.

You will find information on how to set up SPAN or port mirroring on the most popular switches at this link - http://wiki.wireshark.org/SwitchRefer...

Another option is to Google "port mirroring" and the model of your switch.

VLAN monitoring is a useful feature and is available on most Cisco switches. It is available on others but you will need to check their config guides.

Hope this helps,
