Question Route traffic like a hub


Hi all.

I am setting up a machine to monitor traffic between two servers. It has two NICs. What I want, is the machine to function as a hub. I want all packages which reaches the eth0 iface, to be repeated out eth1, looking just like when it came in. The same from eth1 to eth0. How do I do this?

Am running RH8 on 2.4.18.

Any help appreciated.

if you want to bridge, like a layer II switch:

http://bridge.sourceforge.net/

if you want you can also set it up as an dump switch -> HUB.

However if you want to listen to communications between to servers, normaly you would use a monitor port on your switch, of if you are already on a HUB just put your computer to listen to that network.

I can't really understand the need of your setup
