It just seems like a "square peg, round hole" situation to me. It's
just not really the best way to do it, IMO. Passive network
monitoring is a nice solution, while this is a kludge. A network tap
from NetOptics (or similar) would be the ideal solution, but then
you're looking at a few hundred bucks.
But I'm a "purist" when it comes network-related stuff - do it the
right way, or not at all. The reality in many situations is the ideal
way to do something isn't always feasible for financial or other
