Thanks for the reply.  I am tapping a link between an Alcatel SpeedTouch
(standard Ethernet) and an external interface of a Firewall (Standard
Ethernet).  I do not have the ability to drop a sensor on the interface of
the firewall.  It is a linux based firewall, (Astaro), but it would not be a
supported process (something I would have a customer do).  I am using a very
good tap btw, a NetOptics.

Does PPPoE create any other devices that can be used for sniffing
rather than the raw etherent device?
