Cannot get egress port mirroring on 5412zl??

I have a Procurve E5412zl running firmware K.15.04.0003 which, I thought, could do both ingress and egress port mirroring, but when I set it up, I only see ingress traffic to the port getting mirrored. Here is my setup...
(my workstation is on port B5, my Wireshark workstation is on port F23)
config t
vlan 976
untagged b5
mirror 1 port f23
int b5
monitor all both mirror 1
exit
exit

and then I go and "surf the web" on the workstation on port B5, but I only see the requests going out to the web (ingress to the port), I don't see the responses coming back.
Is there some special magic command that I need to run to get egress mirroring working also?

Re: Cannot get egress port mirroring on 5412zl??

sorry... mistake in my posting.... I put port F23 (Wireshark) into isolation VLAN 976.. not port B5, (my workstation)

However, I still don't have egress mirroring

Hi Thomas,

 

It's very strange the case posted by you.

 

I work with 5406zl Switches (with  K.14.60 IOS), are very similar with your model, an this is my conf:

 

mirror 1 name "SNIFFING" port D4

interface A1
   monitor all both mirror 1
   exit
interface A2
   monitor all both mirror 1
   exit

 

So... I 'hear' the ports A1 & A2 trough the port D4 when I've installed the Omnipeek (similar to Wireshark) and works correctely for me . I can see ALL the traffic on these ports.

 

AAPP-CPD1(vlan-68)# sh monitor
There are no Remote Mirroring endpoints currently assigned.

Network Monitoring

   Sessions  Status       Type    Sources  Mirror-Policy

So.... Try to open a case with HP Support Centre. Good luck buddy & Greets from Spain.

Anyway... Can you try to 'hear' the port when you WAN is connected? And in your wireshark configured to see the IN/OUT traffiic to the IP that you have configured in the port b5.

Check this and comments me what happend.
