How To Configure RSPAN on Cisco Switch

Sometime I need to analyze network traffic from remote switch. Thus RSPAN is life saver. Go to the site and capturing the packets and analyze the packets is very time consuming. So here a small tutorial which explain how to configure packets with RSPAN.

SW1(This is the remote switch, Which is the source for our packets.)

sw1(config)#vlan 444
sw1(config)#monitor session 1 source interface Fa1/0/1 - 16
sw1(config)#monitor session 1 destination remote vlan 444

SW2(The destination switch where you going sniff the packets send my remote switch on case sw1.)
sw2(config)#vlan 444
sw2(config-vlan)#name RSPAN_VLAN

sw2(config)#monitor session 1 destination interface Gi0/17
sw2(config)#monitor session 1 source remote vlan 444

Now you can capture remote packets in port 17.

All these tutorial tested on cisco 3750 switch.
