Port mirroring is a feature that allows you to copy and send network traffic from one port (or multiple ports) on a switch to another port, often used for monitoring or analyzing network traffic. In Nebula, the steps to configure port mirroring may vary slightly depending on the specific model of your Nebula switch. Here's a general guide:

Using Port Mirroring in Nebula:

  1. Log in to Nebula Control Center:
    • Open your web browser and log in to the Nebula Control Center using your credentials.
  2. Select the Appropriate Site:
    • If you have multiple sites, choose the specific site where the switch you want to configure is located.
  3. Go to Switch > Configure > Port Mirroring:
    • Navigate to the "Switch" section, then go to "Configure," and look for "Port Mirroring."

This means the switch will copy the ingress/egress traffic from source port to the destination port, therefore you will need to connect the PC/laptop to the port 2 and run the wireshark to capture the packet.
