Is it possible to mirror/monitor the DSL interface (atm/dialer interfaces) to one of the fastethernet ports on this device?

Am I being dim or are you trying to mirror ATM traffic over ethernet? really not sure that's going to work myself. – Chopper3 Jul 31 '09 at 13:50
Yeah pretty much, and neither am I. Thought maybe someone else might know if there's some way this can be achieved :-). – wg Jul 31 '09 at 14:10

I can't find a definite answer either way

monitor session 1 source interface atm0
monitor session 1 destination interface fastethernet 0/1

Have you tried something like the above?

Whilst the document isn't specific to your router, this Cisco document may be of interest to you

Unfortunately, this only works for monitoring the fastethernet interfaces. – wg Jul 31 '09 at 14:33
In which case, I would guess it's not possible to mirror from and to different interface types – Ben Quick Aug 1 '09 at 15:55
