You can achieve this with RSPAN feature. If the computers are phycially
spanned in different switches, you can make use of vlan ACLs and RSPAN
to capture the traffic and report to IDS.

Hello everyone,

Just out of interest, would the SPAN port on a switch replicate traffic
between the computers as well as the uplink port. Say if 192.168.0.39
talks to 192.168.0.38, will the SPAN port replicate the traffic between
the two computers if they were on the same switch AND if they were on
different switches?

Thanks,

Binks
