Monitor all network traffic on an Instant Router Ethernet port

  • Hi.

    I am trying to configure an IDS on my network. The PC running the IDS software is connected to the Ethernet port of the Instant Router, but I am only able to see the traffic where the source or destination is the IDS machine (and broadcast traffic obviously).

    Is all network traffic accessible on the Instant Router Ethernet port (i.e. is the Ethernet port part of an internal hub), or can I only see the traffic destined for the Ethernet port (i.e. the Ethernet port is part of an internal switch/bridge)?

    Note: The network interface of the PC is running in promiscuous mode, so the card should be able to read all traffic, but it is not impossible that I have misconfigured something on the IDS PC.
