Hi Klaus,

The Monitoring Port on a a 41XX ProCurve Switch shows Ingress traffic only. It's a shortcoming of the used chips.
The best way to Snif is to put a Hub in line and connect your Sniffer PC to that hub. Really take care that you switch OFF the Monitoring Port when you are finished as if you connect another switch or hub to that port by accident your whole network can come down.

Thanks, Ardon
