    need port mirror manuals

    Model :

    Hardware Version :

    Firmware Version :

    ISP : [/COLOR]

    We are developing some embedded Linux systems that chat over Ethernet. Specifically they use CoAP. We need to run Wireshark and watch all the traffic between, for example, ports 1 and 2. The computer with Wireshark will be on port 3. A switch with 5 to 8 ports will suffice for this work. So will a hub but it seems that hubs are no longer made. I have searched the tp-link site but not recognized the manuals that describe how to implement that configuration. So far, I have seen that this called a port mirror. I have never done this level of work with a switch.

    1 Which tp-link switches are good choices for this. So far TL-SG1005 looks like a good selection.
    2 Where do I find the manual that presents the steps to do this? I need to see that before making a purchase.

    Thank you for your time.

    TL-SG1005 is unmanaged switch, do not support port mirror function, so you can not choose it.
    You can choose TL-SG105E or TL-SG108E, you can download UG from tp-link website also.
