Hi Baljeet,

Depending upon the requirement and network topology, we can install SWG VM in following monitoring mode,

1) Tap Monitoring

2) inline Monitoring

3) proxy Monitoring

4) inline + proxy monitoring

Which monitoring, you would like to install...

I would recommend you to please go through the Symantec_Web_Gateway_5.1_Implementation_Guide_EN#2.pdf  for more info.

Thanks,

Partha

You will need to have a dedicated phsyical nic to the monitor port on the SWG VM, then that NIC will need to be connected to the span/tap port on your network switch. The span/tap port on the network switch may need to be configured on the switch.
