Tell me, please, is it possible to configure port mirroring in OpenWrt? There is an asus rt-ac68u router with openwrt installed, on the router, computer "A" is connected to port 1, computer "B" is connected to port 2, and on this computer "B" (connected to the second port), I need to intercept all traffic that passes through port 1 from computer "A". Even if this is not quite correct, you just need to configure the monitoring port on the router. please tell me how this can be implemented. Thanks.
It is possible and there is such option in switch configuration.
Thank you very much for your response.
Tell me , please, it turns out that I simply need to execute two commands:
specify port 1 where PC "A"...
and I specify port 2 where PC "B" in my case.
do I need to do anything else? for example,
Usually a mirror monitor port must be dedicated to monitoring, it isn't also attached to a VLAN for data. You may need two network cards in the PC.
I'm just using two network cards on my PC.
root@OpenWrt:~# swconfig list Found: switch0 - bcm53011 root@OpenWrt:~# swconfig dev switch0 show Global attributes: enable_vlan: 1 ports: 0x01bf reset_mib: ??? enable_jumbo: 0 allow_vid_4095: 0
I understand that this router does not support the mirroring function?
swconfig dev switch0 help

Looks like it is not capable
is there any router model that exactly supports this function?
It looks like Archer A7 (AR8337 switch chip) does, and it should be the same chip in all versions of the C7 as well.
Edgerouter X (MT7621 internal switch) does not.
