The cap you should be able to get from www.jameco.com

Had very good results with the netoptics tap. Had some trouble at first but
the tech support was one of the best I have dealt with and the tap is great.
If you are buying one MAKE SURE YOU GET THE RIGHT ONE. Call or email
netoptics they will assist.
MOST require a 100baseT FULL DUPLEX connection or they will not function

Subject: [Snort-users] sniffing cables and network taps


So I've gotten my sniffing cable working over a hub, but really, it's not
the most efficient way to do it.  I've read discussion on this list about
using network taps as they would work with switches.  Can any of you
recommend a good site to pick one up at as well as any resources on how to
utilize one?  I've never had to use one before.

Alternatively, I've been talking to several folks on the list in hopes of
locating a capacitor that could be used according to Sam Ng's cable design.
I'm looking for a 160VDC 40 VAC Polysytrene 15 pico farad capacitor.  Does
anyone out there know where to get these at?  The site that Sam had directed
me to is in the UK and their US distributor doesn't have them.  Anyone know
where to get any ?
