The Throwing Star LAN Tap Pro is a small, simple device for monitoring Ethernet communications.
- Use Ethernet cables to connect the Throwing Star LAN Tap Pro (J1 and J2) in line with a target network to be monitored.
- Use Ethernet cables to connect one or both of the monitoring ports (J3 and J4) to ports on one or two monitoring stations. Each port monitors traffic in one direction only.
- Use your favorite software (e.g., tcpdump or Wireshark) on the monitoring station(s) to capture network traffic.
