I am trying to add a monitor device to our network and in my mind it will go in between the firewall and main switch.
Internet ---- Firewall ---- New Monitor ---- Main Switch
I am going to run NtopNG on a linux box setup in a transparent bridge configuration. If my mind it should pass all traffic, but I am concerned that it will not push the vlan tagged traffic through.
- I have created the bride and added the interfaces
- Gave the bridge an IP address so I can connect remotely
- Put the device on a test network and its passing traffic fine, but I do not have any vlan traffic to test, other than my production environment.
Will a transparent bridge pass all traffic?
The main switch is a procurve, and the firewall/router is a ASA.
