Hy man...
I have a better idea. Its very, very simple!
Some times u can't do a port mirror or other modifications on the
hardware/system of the client.
Depending on the hardware/system u have to learn how to do a port mirror to
get all traffic on that box(switch).
Learn is cool man, but... some times... we dont have time to play with this
Some times IT professionals dont configure the hardware/system like u like
or when u want.
U have to do a complete solution without modifications or touch on any
system/hardware of the company. Right?
Some time i hate IT professionals.
I saw many problems with "IT professionals x Security Officers".
ITS COOL MAN!!!  >:-)
They always have problems with our security work.
Maybe u r IT professional!!!  :-p~
If... I'm sorry... Forget what i said. :-p~~~

U can do that:

        COOL HUB ---------> SNORT SENSOR


Its simple...  but work!!!
U can use that solution to anything on security (like SNIFFING / NIDS /
