Our router does not support WCCP and we also do not have L4 switch. We are planning to deploy the WSA virtual appliance as a tapping device in monitoring mode. For that we are considering to mirror our network traffic in a specific port (e.g. 37008) and want WSA will listen on that port. Is it possible to deploy WSA in such way? I do not find any option to mention a listening port in WSA GUI.
For your information, I just configured it partially from system setup wizard and in the transparent redirection device option (in connection setting) I have selected Layer 4 switch or no device option.
have you configured we traffic tap settings
check under network --> web traffic tap
enable and select the interface to tap the traffic.
We are using MikroTik Router and are not currently using any firewall device
We are deploying the WSA (virtual appliance) for research purpose and our intention is to monitor the inbound and outbound traffic without blocking any malicious or suspicious traffic. Is not there any scope to listen from any specific switch port (port no. 37008) where mirror traffic are sent? if not then what will be the option to send traffic through WSA?
