I have a HP Procurve switch configured with port mirroring so that if I plug a PC with wireshark into the monitor port, I can see all the traffic. My issue is that it is on a seperate network to the main company network, and I would like to monitor it with our PRTG installation. The server has a spare network port so that is not a problem - I just need to know how to configure Windows networking so that it is isolated from the main network, and doesn't route any traffic through that port for security reasons, or if possible, configure it as a monitoring port only (i.e. receive traffic but not send).
I tried disabling IPv4, Client for microsoft networks on the adapter, and just leaving the Microsoft network monitor driver ticked, but then this stops it receiving any traffic.
