Hi, I'm trying to capture frames from print jobs via a span port on cisco switch, however nothing from print jobs gets captured. The span port mirrors the packets from the port where the printer is connected. I expected frames with destination printer ip and port 9100, but nothing of that kind. When I ping the printer I do see these packages appear, as well as snmp messages. Am I missing something obvious ?

Thanks for any help

Am I missing something obvious ?

maybe there are currently no print jobs?

BTW: Do you see ping/snmp frames that are sent from the Wireshark PC or from other systems? If other systems, your mirror port configuration should be O.K. If it's just your own ping/snmp frames, your mirror port configuration might be broken.
